It is stated in the PowerServer Help that the usage of the tooltip feature is supported by Appeon.

In case of a very long tooltip, it is possible to just break the line with e.g. CRTL+Enter. However, this only works with the desktop apllication. After deploying it as a web application, the line breaks do not work anymore.

So the text is displayed in just one line. The part of the text that does not fit onto the screen is just cut off.

 

Is it somehow possible to display the tooltip with the line-breaks in Web?

 

Regards

Hi Irma,

The Carriage-returns work with tooltip title enabled, please try set a tooltip ***title*** value and use the CTRL+ENTER to enter the Carriage-returns in tooltip text or use the expression like "Line#1~r~n" + "Line#2~r~n" + "Line#3".

Hi,

Thank you for your help, it works perfectly fine when adding a title to the tooltip in Web!

Do you happen to know if this little "workaround" will remain to be necessary or will this ever be "fixed" in the future?

Hi Irma,



In the new generation of PowerServer, essentially 100% of PowerBuilder features

are supported.



You can refer to the following link for more information on PowerServer 2021:

Greetings, Irma -

I have no experience using PowerServer, but in PB I've successfully used ~r~n (tilde,r,tilde,n) in my code when dynamically constructing tooltip text, and in the expression builder dialog window in the DataWindow painter. Maybe you can give that a try?

Regards, John

Hi,

Thank you for your help. I did try as you stated, but unfortunately it does not work in Web without adding a title to the tooltip :).

Greetings,

Irma
