Hi, Formspider team

In my application i've made tooltip which depend of datasource query and I show it in my application using tooltipColumn atribute, it works. Next step what I want to do is to put tooltip text in to multilanguage key. But when I run application in tooltip is showing "#{lang.text1}" instead "text1"

Hi Tihomir,

I did a quick test. Things seem to be working properly. What you see occurs when Formspider cannot find a translation for the multilingual key it sees in the application.

Did you create multilingual keys in the Formspider IDE? For example, you should create a multingual key named key1 and provide a translation for at least one language. Something like key="Click this button" for English. Next, you should assign this key as the value of the tooltip attribute: <textlabel tooltip="#{lang.key1}"/>

After the application runs with English as its current language, Formspider will translate any #{lang.key1} value it sees to Click this button.

If this doesn't help and if your application is on Formspider Cloud, please tell me its name. Then I can look and see what the problem is.

Kind Regards,

I used <tooltipcolumn="tooltiptext">

When in column tooltiptext have simple text it works fine. But as I said when I put #{lang.key1} in tootiptext in my app in tooltip I've see #{lang.key1}, not the value of key1.

I check the key1 and it exists in multilingual keys for both languages which I defined.

This is column from my datasource which I put in tooltipColumn , case when sum(utroseno_vreme) over(partition by datum, er.radnik_id) > 8 then '#{lang.overtime}' when sum(utroseno_vreme) over(partition by datum, er.radnik_id) < 8 then '#{lang.undertime}' else null end as tooltipText

Best Regards, Tihomir

Hi Tihomir,

Indeed, there seems to be a bug with the tooltipColumn. It doesn't show the multilingual key values correctly. No worries. We'll fix this in the next version. Thank you for letting us know.

Kind Regards,
