Shortcut Keys in Zend Eclipse for PHP Developers (PDT)

At any time, press:

Ctrl + Shift + L

For a list of available shortcut keys defined in your Zend Eclipse PDT.

Go:

Window > Preferences > General > Keys

To edit the shortcut keys. Or simply press Ctrl + Shift + L twice.

For Zend Eclipse PDT to instantly show a tool tip hint of what the parameters of a function / method are so you don’t have to look up the original definition, just place the cursor in the parameters parenthesis and press one of them:

Alt + ?

Alt + Shift + /

Ctrl + Shift + Space

Which is defined under the title “Context Information” when you press Ctrl + Shift + L.

If a function or method name is elusive to you, type the beginning part of it and press:

Alt + /

Ctrl + Alt + /

And PDT would try and auto-complete it for you. It is defined under the title “Word Completion” when you press Ctrl + Shift + L.
