I thought I’d share up this very useful script that I found today, I guess that as you’re viewing this page you want to enable the lovely code auto-completeion features that NetBeans supports and as by default you’ve found that NetBeans doesn’t support this for CodeIgnitor.
So here’s the fix:-
- Download netbeans_autocomplete_codeigniter file (Contains mainly PHP comments that then enables NetBeans to do it’s magic!)
- Rename the file name extension from .txt to .php
- Copy the file into your CodeIgniter Project’s NetBeans folder (in the root, so in the same folder as project.properties and project.xml)
- If you have NetBeans currently open you’ll need to restart it for the changes to take effect!
Wolla! – Its done! – You can test by opening any controller and in a method block, start typing… $this->d and you should then find that you have the ability to choose $this->db and then iterates down the chain with the ability to auto-complete $this->db->select(); etc.
I found this fantastic ‘trick’ here, so all kudo’s to the original author on this one!
Hope this helps 🙂
