thats the builtin 'omnicomplete' feature of vim. you activate it with ctrl-x ctrl-o. additionally you will need to

:set wildmenu
:set completeopt += longest

very helpfull is the use of ctags, it creates kind of a database of available functions across your project. vim then uses that database to give you the list of available matches. php is supported by ctags so you want to use ctags as well.

combine this with the help of phpcomplete( http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=3171 ) and you should get very close to what you see on that picture.
