Make Static Dialogs
Use this refactoring to convert an instance method into a static one.
The dialog box opens if you currently use the existing object via
this or access the properties of the class.
If your method does not need any parameters, nor rely on accessing properties or methods of this object,
you will get the static method made silently, without displaying any dialog boxes:
Make Method Static Dialog
|Add object as a parameter with name||
Select this check box
to pass in an instance of the object via a parameter.
In the text box below, specify the name of the parameter to be generated.
After the refactoring, the new parameter will be documented in the PHPDoc block.
|Add parameters for fields||
Use this area to pass the value of the property as a parameter instead of accessing the object inside the newly created static method
if you access the properties of the class.
Select the Add parameters for fields check box.
In the Parameters list, which shows all the possibly suggested parameters, select the check boxes next to the ones
that you want to pass the values in.
