Visual Studio Code= please help me remember a simple shortcut

Hi there.
Took a break from coding that I shouldnt have taken.
In VSC, there was a shortcut click ( something like CTRL + right mouse click ), used to click on a predefined function that you have written, be it PHP, JS, whatever, and it would insta show you that function in detail on a appearing window ( what are its expected parameters… ).
I’m not sure whether a VSC extension is needed for that, may be the case.

Thanks anyone

It’s the language support for whatever language you’re using. Normally uses a language server. For JS/TS it doesn’t, it’s built in. For PHP you’d install (I think, I don’t use PHP) both PHP language support (which will give syntax highlighting) and a PHP language server (which will give you language definitions/ refactoring/ etc). May well be a single package, as I say I don’t use PHP. Once you’ve got an extension for a language installed, right click menu will show “Go to definition” etc options when you right click on something, and you should get completions as you type

Just found out, for PHP one of these at least is PHP Intelephense.

Thank you
