Code completion after app(Class::class) in PHPStorm

Posted 1 week ago by Linq5


We use PHPStorm at work. We have a difference in functionality between colleagues, whereas the environments look the same (same plugins, for instance). Consider the following code:

$migrator = app(ModuleMigrator::class);

A colleague of mine can ctrl+click on the up() method to navigate to the ModuleMigrator class. I however can't; the IDE does not recognize the $migrator variable as such. I have to add a type hint, /** App\Migrators\ModuleMigrator $migrator */ to it before the IDE recognizes it.

Can anyone explain the difference in behaviour? It's very annoying, as renaming a method does not work well if the IDE does not recognize all uses of the method.

Kind regards,
