I have a PHP trait file :
Even though it is a PHP file (with .php extension), PHPStorm is unable to recognize it as a valid PHP file. The editor is not doing syntax highlighting for PHP code inside this file and it is pretty much displayed as normal text file.
I am trying to use this file from its namespace in to another class file and there also it is unable to recognize the file path using :
composer dump-autoload and also :
File->Invalid Caches and restart
I also deleted this file and restarted PHPStorm and again added it back but still not able to resolve this issue.
Looks like something has gone weird when I created a first file with this file name and now even though I tried all option PHPStorm is not treating this file as PHP file.
But still PHPStorm is unable to recognize this file.
How can I fix this issue?
File | Settings | Editor | File Types – search for that file (someTrait.php) in a “Text” file type. Once found – remove
