Type Hint for view scripts

I am using Zend Framework and there is no code completition inside view scripts. I know that IDE has no knowledge of the properties and I have to type hint.
I am doing somethig like this:
Code:

<?php
/** @var Zend_View */
$this;
/** @var My_Model_Page */
$page = $this->page;
?>
<?php
$this->
$page->
?>

It would be much better if I could do this:
Code:

<?php
/**
* @var Zend_View $this The Zend View Object
* @var My_Model_Page $this->page My Page Object
*/
?>
<?php
$this->
$this->page->
?>

Or am I missing something??

May I ask you to post more or less complete example? Perhaps a kind of trivial case with two files would be enough.

Regarding $this, it's almost never requires type-hints because its type is current class and it's always known (unless I don't understand what's going on).
Regarding $this->page, you may want to add type hint to the place where "page" property is declared. In this case all references to page will be recognized properly.

A view script is a plain php script that is included by a method of a class.
Basically like this:
Code:

class Zend_View {
   
    public function render($script){
        /*
        $this->page  is a Page Object set somewhere else
        */
        return include $script;  // /some/path/to/template.phtml
    }
}


and /some/path/to/template.phtml like:
Code:

<h1><?php echo $this->page->getTitle() ?></h1>
<p><?php echo $this->page->getContent() ?></p>

So when editing the template PhpED can not know of what type $this is or which properties it has.
So I need type hinting.

What I should say... This kind of code is not supported. If possible, please don't include files into a class method or function.
Otherwise, you have to provide typehint for $this too.

This is the way Zend Framework's MVC works (or can work) - the view file is a separate phtml file which is basically a Zend_View instance (Zend/OO purists will correct me here no doubt - hey I used to code in 68000, all this OO stuff isn't my bag)

It would be a great help if there was a way of explicitly typing a whole file to a particular class, perhaps a preference where you could say that a .phtml is essentially a Zend_View class (link it with the class file).

Sorry I think that was really badly explained!
