Is there a shortcut for PHP's -> ?

This may sound dumb since it's only 2 chars, but I find -> a huge pain to type!

I wonder if there is a shortcut?

for example:

Typing $this

In netbeans if I type $this followed by control+space it changes to:
$this-> and has a list of choices under that.

Hi there,

Is there an equivilent shortcut in PhpStorm?

No.

If you want custom shortcut for such key sequence then just record a macro (Edit | Macros) and then assign custom shortcut to it at "Settings | Keymap"

Alternatively (bit more limited scope) you can create a Live Template (Settings | Live Templates) that would transform $t[TAB] (or t[TAB]) into $this->

Thanks Andriy!

  That worked great!

  Probably the shortest macro in the world but it will be so much easier!

  I assigned it to shift space, which I can easily type with just one hand and it has made a difference already!
