Improved Completion for Overriding in PhpStorm 2016.3

Gary Hockin

At your request, we’ve implemented some subtle improvements in how we generate code completion when you’re overriding methods or properties in PhpStorm 2016.3.

When you start typing the method or property name of a class you are extending, PhpStorm 2016.3 will give you the right completion options to override that item with the correct icon in the gutter:

While this has always been available if you invoked completion after the visibility of your method, this makes life slightly easier, particularly if you extend a lot of abstract classes in your daily job.
