Issue: When using defineName() having the tag name using a . adds quotes around the objects key

Image with defineName demo: image01

Required behaviour. Need to convert . to * for example: dog.text_text should be dog*text_text, or when passing this value dog.text_text the objects key dog"."text_text should not be wrapped in quotes.

 

another image02 is shown how the object key should be shown using the browsers console

Also error message just says invalid name : {name} and has no useful information to figure out the issue

Hi,

I am afraid that currently setting a name that includes a dot when using the defineName() is not supported in the Spreadsheet and should be considered as a limitation. We will update the respective Known Limitations section describing the limitation.

Let me know in case you have additional questions on the matter.

Hi Neli,

Can you provide list of allowed characters that we can use in defineName() to create a tag and also list of special chracters which are not allowed ? This can help us to solve our issue.

Hi,

The described behavior is expected with any JavaScript special character. For example, the behavior will be the same also with the following characters, : ; ! = \ | > < & @ or empty string
