apostrophe in a ComboBox, HTML5 CANVAS

When using a combobox in animate, you cannot use the apostrophe. If I write as label "Tom's train", the result will be
"Tom" + "'" + “train” .
Is this an Animate bug?
Thanks for your help.

Hi.

 

It's because Animate uses single quotes in the output so it replaces the apostrophe character by the HTML entity '.

One possible solution is to change the item you want at runtime. Like this:

stage.on("drawend", function()
{
	var combobox = document.getElementById("yourComboBoxID");
	combobox.options[0].textContent = "Tom's train";
}, this, true);

 

I hope it helps.

 

Regards,

JC

Thanks very much. Your command works perfectly.
But it's a pity that in the properties of the combobox the apostrohe was not provided while for other ASCCI characters this is not a problem.
