  • Custom tool tips no longer render


    Normally I would debug the game myself but I am away from my PC om business for the weekend. Custom tool tips no longer load when created through the Javascript api. it happened to my game and I also got my brother to check For the king beacon fire because I knew they had nice custom tool tips as well. turns out their tooltip also don't load. this bug was introduced with the latest main client update.

    *EDIT* I'm at a hotel on my laptop so I can give more information. It's this javascript method: DOTAShowTitleTextTooltip(string title, string text). In the text I pass some $.Localized strings and some html. The panels are html="true" enabled

    Thanks for any help,

      Just got home, I isolated the issue.

      The text included in the tooltip event includes stuff like: <font color='white'>
      This used to work. Since the last reborn update, the function can no longer parse this

      Isolated it further, apostrophe's won't be accepted in the javascript function DOTAShowTitleTextTooltip(string title, string text). I had this problem with commas before too

        Solved by adding this line:

        title = title.replace(/(['"])/g, "\\$1");
        tooltip = tooltip.replace(/(['"])/g, "\\$1");
        $.DispatchEvent("DOTAShowTitleTextTooltip", $.GetContextPanel(), title, tooltip);

          can you elaborate on your solution? so i guess inline tags don't work anymore because it doesn't accept apostrophes?

              yeah i realized i was having another problem instead (didn't realize i had to set html=true for labels to work with inline tags). thanks for the help anyway
