php isn't auto completing

Hello,

I'm using Intellij IDEA 12.1.4 and for whatever reason in new php files it doesn't autocomplete. I imported a PHP class (it sees the file is there) but when I instantiate an instance it doesn't seem to know the class.

Is there something I'm not configuring properly?

I've seen the same behavior as well. What has helped me is to use documentation notation when I run into that.

i.e.

<?php


class myClass {
     /**
     /* @var IncludedClass
      */
     $classInstance


     function __construct($newClass) {
          $this->classInstance = $newClass
     }
}


That usually allows it to pick it up rightway. I know it's not ideal, but it seems to work pretty good, and it's good practice anyway.

Do you know if this is correct behavior?

I don't, but it keeps me working. I don't actually mind it because all developers, including myself, usually need encouragement to document their code better. :) I'm sorry I don't have a better answer.
