ColorPalette: tooltips always in english (IE7)

Using test page /dijit/tests/test_ColorPalette.html:

  1. Set your IE7 browser to French (or any other language but English).
  2. Load the page
  3. Using the last ColorPalette control, go over the colors.


  • If your mouse is on the border, the tooltip will be localized.
  • If your mouse is on the color, the tooltip will be in English.

This is in IE7 or IE9 Compatibility View with IE7 mode.

This is caused by the 'alt' attribute on the <img> for the color. It's in English. Other browsers will use the 'title' attribute instead.

In [28474]:

Localize alt and title attribute on <img> node, to prevent tooltip on IE7 being English.

Removed the BIDI tests for ColorPalette direction since it turns out there's no requirement about which direction the colors display in RTL mode.
