The page and all the pages under this node are available only when the PHP plugin is enabled. The plugin is bundled with PhpStorm and activated by default. If the plugin is not activated, enable it on the Plugins page of the Settings / Preferences Dialog as described in Enabling and Disabling Plugins.

On this page, specify the PHP methods and functions which you want the debugger to skip in addition to the common list of items to be skipped which is defined on the Stepping page.

Skip magic methodsSelect this check box to suppress stepping into PHP magic methods and any other methods or functions with names starting with a double underscore __.
Skip constructorsSelect this check box to suppress stepping into constructors.
Skipped MethodsIn this area, create a list of specific methods that you do not want PhpStorm to step into.
  • To add a method to the list, click the Add add button and in the Add Method dialog box that opens type the name of the required function or the fully qualified name of the required method in the format \namespace\class->method.
  • To remove a method from the list so PhpStorm steps into it during a debugging sessions, select the desired method in the list and click the Remove delete button.
