PhpStorm 8.0.2 Help

Working with Background Tasks

When lengthy tasks are running, for example, search and replace, VCS update, etc., PhpStorm displays the progress bar. You can bring execution of such tasks to the background by clicking the Background button.


However, when a task of a certain type is brought to the background, you can still view its progress.

To view tasks running in the background, do one of the following

  • View the Status bar:
  • In the Status bar, click uiStatusBackground.
  • On the main menu, choose Window | Background Tasks | Show .
