PhpStorm 8.0.2 Help


PhpStorm provides the following inline refactorings:

  • The Inline Variable refactoring replaces redundant variable usage with its initializer. This refactoring is opposite to Extract Variable.
  • The Inline Function/Method refactoring results in placing the method's or function's body into the body of its caller(s); the method or function is deleted. This refactoring is opposite Extract Method.
