If you are using netbeans for PHP classes and you have some of your class properties are instances of other objects and you want to get autocomplete working for them, then you might struggle to figure out which PHPDoc syntax to use to get autocomplete working.

Here is the answer:

* @property MyObject $myObject
* @property AnotherObject $anotherObject
class MyClass{

     protected $myObject;
     protected $anotherObject;
     public function __construct($myObject, $anotherObject){
     public function autocomplete(){
         $this->myObject->//autocomplete works here
