Using Code Explorer

Code Explorer lists classes, functions, variables and includes contained in the script and allows you to quickly move to any of them. You can navigate to an item by clicking it.

To enable Code Explorer, on the View menu, click Code Explorer. Make sure that the PHP option is enabled at the bottom of the Code Explorer pane.

Code Explorer refreshes automatically when you move your mouse over it, but you can also refresh it manually at any time by clicking Refresh button.


  • By default, PHP variables are not listed in Code Explorer. To list variables, on the Code Explorer toolbar, click Options and then enable option List Variables.
