Code Inspection: Ignored class alias declaration

Reports the class alias declarations that are ignored by the IDE because the actual class declaration with the same FQN exists.

The inspection is intended to clarify the IDE’s behavior in the cases when both the class and the class alias declarations are present. When several declarations with the same FQN exist, the IDE usually fails to choose a single one between them. This leads to missing code completion, erroneous type inference, and so on. Since the class declaration prevails over the class alias declaration, the latter becomes redundant and therefore ignored by the IDE.

Note that ignoring class alias declarations does not affect the behavior of the PHP interpreter.

Suppress an inspection in the editor

  1. Position the caret at the highlighted line and press Alt+Enter or click the Intention action icon.
