  • 5. Rename Elements (Refactoring)

    If at any point during your development you want to rename an element, this can be easily done using the in-place refactoring feature. This will apply the rename operation to all occurrences of the required element so that all links between elements are maintained. Note: The refactoring feature also gives access to a range of other functions such as move file and extract variable. See Refactoring for more information.

    It is good programming practice to comment all functions, classes and methods in your code. This helps both the developer and others who might look at the code to understand its purpose. Simply add a double slash "//" and comment away! Zend Studio also allows you to easily select and comment existing lines.
