Refactor | Extract Method
|Name||In this text box, specify the name of the function or method to be generated on the basis of the selected source code.|
|Visibility||In this area, specify the visibility scope of the method to be generated.|
|Declare static||Select this check box to have a static method created.
If the new method cannot be declared as static, or, vice-versa, can be created only as a static method, the Declare Static check box is disabled.
|Declare varargs||Select this option if you want to declare varargs instead of the array.|
|Fold parameters||Select this option to fold the parameters, for example, if you have an array, like int a = new int[i], and you want a[i] to be passed as a whole to the newly created method.|
|Extract chained constructor||Use this option to extract chained constructor from the constructor body, replacing the original code with this.|
|Output variable(s)||This read-only text box displays the name of the variable through which the output of the new method/function will be passed to the calling method/function. Depending on your choice in the Return output variable(s) through area, this variable either will be used in a return statement or will be declared as the passed by reference parameter of the new method/function.|
|Return output variable(s) through||
In this area, specify the way in which the new method or function will return the output variables to the callee..
The area is available only when refactoring is invoked in the PHP context.
In this area, select parameters to be passed to the new method/function.
If any parameter that is critical for the functionality of the new method is not selected, IntelliJ IDEA will be unable to proceed with the refactoring.
