Hello,

I have a Drupal project that I am working on through Eclipse 3.4 with
PDT 1.1. In the PHP Project Outline I noticed that there is a listing of
all functions from the PHP files on Drupal. As Drupal uses very little
in the way of classes the function list is very long for each module
that is used with Drupal. Is there a way to quickly search for a
function much like you look for a class (Open Type) / file (Open
Resource)???

If there is no way, how do I go about making a request to get that
functionality added? I don't think it would take much more work as the
list of functions is already being done by the indexer.

Thanks

P.S. I know I could do a search through all the php files to find the
function but that includes all calls to the function. I would much
rather be able to take advantage of the list that is already in the PHP
Project Outline.

Hi Shawn,
you can use 'Navigate' > 'Open PHP Element' from the main menu or
Shift+Alt+G shortcut. If you need to go to the function declaration just
click on the function name and press F3.

Thanks for the quick reply Стоян Димитров...

I was thinking that functionality must be there as I use to use a
similar ability with my Java development. Unfortunately with the
I20080616 build I don't have that 'Open PHP Element' menu item. The
other thing is pressing F3 while on a function name doesn't take me to
the declaration. I will grab the latest nightly build to see if it is back.

F3 doesn't work for me with the latest integration build too. Will try
to figure out another way around. Another tip, somehow related, it to
track down something usable with Ctrl+3 - giving you access to nearly
all UI/menu items.

I tried the last two I builds (I20080616, I20080602) and the last two N
(N20080630, N20080623) builds and none of them had the functionality I'm
talking about above (obviously I'm referring to PDT 1.0.3
functionality). That's the reason I stay with 1.0.3 for now. (:

P.S.
Excuse me for the caused version confusion.

you are right this functionality is not implemented yet,

add yourself as cc to Bugzilla #231540
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=231540) and stay tuned.

Bests,

Hi,

I think this is a matter of file network filtering... I'll explain:

F3 will only work if PHP element is accessible from current file. I.e.
there is a resolved 'include' statement in the original file, which
leads to the file where PHP element is declared.

I think this feature must be configurable, and it should be disabled by
default.

What do you think?

Thanks!

Michael,

I see what you are talking about but this functionality doesn't work
well with the way Drupal files / includes are organized. This may be
something a little Drupal specific but it has a fairly active OS
community and making Eclipse PDT work nicely with it would be beneficial.

The main thing with Drupal is that it loads modules through dynamic
include statements. The include statement has a variable for the
included file and that variable is retrieved from a database call.

What would need to happen is that if the Open Declaration (F3) command
doesn't find a function then it would open the 'Open Method / Open PHP
Element' window with the current selected function name entered into
this window so the user can see all possible matches and choose which
one is the actual function declaration.

Sound feasible?

Of course, that what I was talking about.
Filtering by include() should be optional.

I've just committed a new bug about it:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=239431

Thanks!
