Tooltip content has Apsotrophe sign which is blocking UI



Whenever there is apostrophe in the radio button's tooltip property, then all the content of tooltip after apostrophe is not considered by the application.

When inspected in DOM the label's title is considered only till apostrophe and all the remaining is being generated out of title attribute.

In any case if there is text "hidden" after apostrophe then as the remaining text is forming out of title attribute hidden is considered as an attribute and the element is getting hidden.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1) Create drop-down with datapage as source.
2) Specify some property for tooltip.
3) Note that the property has to contain apostrophe(').

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems rules.


Perform the following local-change step:

When content is copied from wordpad, the apostrophe symbol changes and this does not cause any issue.

A bug with ID: BUG-244105 has been raised for this, and might be considered to be fixed in upcoming release.
