Description Vladimir Riha 2013-01-04 11:23:09 UTC
In PHP this doesn't happen (hints are not visible at all like in issue 224413). Please try following:

var a = 1;
var b = 1

if (a == b) {


// file end

- change settings of these 2 hints to "Warning on current line":
  - missing semicolon
  - "Using === or !== instead..."

- confirm changes
- back in editor, place cursor to line "var a = 1;"
=> both hints are still visible

Same happens for me on PHP


if ($value = getValue())
    echo "value ist $value", PHP_EOL;

function getValue()
    return true;


The IF warns for accidentional assignment which is totally ok, but I do this as intention. In PHP this expression is true, if the content of the assignment is true.
I don't like this to be displayed as warning, so I set it to "warning on current line", but then I do not see anything as warning - either at the scroll pane or when beeing on the line itself. Using the "display as info" works best for me, BUT that is not included in the action items!

I think your problem is more likely issue 143677 as you don't see the hint at all.
