Code Inspection: Static method called as dynamic
Reports dynamic calls to static class methods.
If the target has the magic method
__call, a separate inspection severity and highlighting level can be set.
In PHP 5, calling non-static methods statically generates an
E_STRICT warning. In PHP 7, calling non-static methods statically is deprecated, and will generate an
E_DEPRECATED warning. For more information, refer to Static methods (php.net).
In the following example, the method
foo() is called as dynamic while actually it is static.
Suppress an inspection in the editor
