Code Style Settings for PHP 7 return types

In PhpStorm 2016.3 we’ve added code style settings to add/remove space before/after colon for PHP 7 return types. Now it’s very easy to reformat your PHP 7 code and make it look just perfect by pressing “Reformat Code” shortcut.


See the full list of bug-fixes and improvements list in our issue tracker and in the complete release notes.

      @joshuagigg:disqus from which version were you trying to update? The patch update should be available only from the version PhpStorm 2016.3 EAP build (163.3512).

      • Joshua Gigg

        From the previous EAP build (163.3512.10)

          Looks like we had an issue with it which is fixed now and should work fine for the next update. Sorry for inconvenience.

            Still getting the same message.
            Do you mean that I have to reinstall 2nd EAP release completely and patch update will work in the 3rd release?

          • Anna Lebedeva

            Yes, for current one unfortunately you will have to reinstall the whole EAP build.

        I am seeing the same. EAP Build: 163.3512.10
