I am a beginner with PHP and Joomla Core development. This great extension helps me a lot during my learning. A very frequent situation when I try to understand some code is, there is a method of a class being invoked in a line and I want to look into the definition of the class but have no idea where it is. Before j!dump, I had to download the extension in question and in-text search the class, which takes a lot of time. I believe this simple goal can be achieved by using j!dump, but I don't know how. It is like follows:
$messages = modPimediaplayerHelper::getStudy($params);
This line is found in a module's PHP file, I'd like to know where this
modPimediaplayerHelper is defined, I tried
dump(modPimediaplayerHelper::getStudy), both of them don't work, so what should I do?
By the way, when I try to
dump($params), it returns a object without meaningful properties but only methods, which provokes me to look into how this $params object is defined also, how do I use J!dump to track it?
