I'm using TextMate, and there is a good short key to see "documentation for function call (tooltip)". But it works only for PHP-internal functions.

It would be good to have this functionality for user-defined functions. This information could be taken from the phpdoc block.

I'm already using ctags to jump from function to function, but maybe there is a way to integrate tag files with showing function signature (definition)?

Isn't there a "Documentation for Function Call (tool tip)" in the PHP bundle? – romainl Feb 25 '12 at 6:55
Yes but it works only for internal function. What about my own functions (class methods etc .. ) ? – user1016265 Feb 27 '12 at 6:34
No, I don't think there is such a feature. Maybe you can modify the existing one? – romainl Feb 27 '12 at 6:39
this is what about my question :) is there anyone who has ready solution. Because this tooltip for custom function could be very helpfull. – user1016265 Feb 27 '12 at 12:41
