Given the following:
- A class named KwikValidatingTestFixture uses the trait ValidatingFixtureTrait
ValidatingFixtureTrait contains a private member requiresValidation and a public method requiresValidation that returns the value of requiresValidation
KwikValidatingTestFixture is extended by EmployeeTimeChargingPolicyStatementFixture
EmployeeTimeChargingPolicyStatementFixture is extended by EmployeeTimeChargingFixture
I have a break point set in ValidatingFixtureTrait::requiresValidation and have it paused as it is called via EmployeeTimeChargingFixture. The PHPStorm Variables panel looks like this:
Notice that there is no requiresValidation property that is visible. I gather that the asterisks vis-a-vis *EmployeeTimeChargingPolicyStatementFixture*requiresValidation and *KwikValidatingTestFixture*requiresValidation indicate a super class visibility of private. It should also be noted that the default value of *EmployeeTimeChargingPolicyStatementFixture*requiresValidation is true, and at this moment in time (that is, when the screen shot was snapped) that value is actually true, however the EmployeeTimeCharging member, requiresValidation, is in fact false. Which leads me to believe there may be a bug here? Or, maybe I'm not understanding what is being indicated by the asterisks? In any event it doesn't appear to be accurate.
