- Include Yii folder (outside project directory)
- Open "File > Project properties > PHP Include Path" and add the Yii framework root path
- Ignore yiilite.php to avoid doubled/missing documentation
- Open "Tools > Options > Miscellaneous > Files"
- Add to the front of "Files Ignored by the IDE" the file "^(_yiilite\\.php_|CVS|SCCS|...."
- Restart NetBeans
 
- In your code, you'll most likely want to have code completion for class methods/properties for objects passed in the global namespace to "current" file your editing. For example, when a controller object is being passed into a view file. To have code completion in this case, you have to tell the IDE what's the class of this object. This is achieved by adding a simple comment line (a 1 line php doc block) declaring the class of the object. This comment should be placed in a line before using this object, with no new empty lines in between. For example, in the code section below, which is part of some view file, adding the comment makes the IDE think that $this is of type YourController, and adds code completion accordingly:
 
 
```php 
/* @var $this YourController */
 
$this->getSomeProValue(); // whatever method/prop.
 
``` 


For above and many more reasons, Yii core files should be kept **outside** project directory and anywhere outside any web-accessible directory. I.e. if you keep your project files in Apache's _httpd_ directory, it is wise to create a new dir (called _yii_, _framewore_ or sth. like that) in the same level of dirtree (inside Apache main folder, **not** in _httpd_ dir!) and put Yii core files there. If you do that, you have to include Yii folder in _Include Path_, as it is written above.

- If you want to stop the debugger from pausing on the first line for every request, simply turn that "feature" off by clicking: Tools > Options > PHP > Debugging > Stop at First Line (uncheck)
