Icon name in popup on desktop

Is it necessary to have the icon name popup (like an alt image tag) when an icon is hovered over when run on the desktop. This affects icons on buttons but not on hamburgers.

This seems to come from statement title=‘arrow-thick-left’ in the index,html file. I can process the file to either remove the statement or change it to something sensible, ie from ‘arrow-thick-left’ to ‘Back’, or even change the icon names in the file open-iconic-bootstrap.min.css, but I would rather not have to.

Good point. In the next build (coming in the next few days) you’ll be able to specify the icon title.

Thanks for adding this. Having gone thru and added titles for the icons, I have just been asked if I can make a foreign-language version of one of my apps. Is there a way of changing the titles at runtime?

AppStudio has a method built in to handle internationalization (i18n):


I noticed that the new iconTitle property wasn’t covered by this: it will work in the next build.
