Destroy/hide event breaks if event is initialized from inside the qtip. #476

qTip2 normal behavior is usually that when the selector is removed from the page the qtip popup hides itself. We are trying to use it wherein the element that initializes the reset/hide action for the selector is inside the qtip itself. This breaks the close method and the qtip fails to hide itself.

We are currently employing a workaround by inserting a 'hide' call when the selector is refreshed. eg. $(selector, context).qtip('hide');


Can you please setup a reproducible test case?


Hi! Don't know if exactly related to this problem, but sure it has something to do with destroying qTips. I'm using this solution ( to get qTip in my error messages on an ASP.NET MVC4 project. This worked flawlesly in version v2.0.1-4-g, but recently I upgraded it to v2.0.1-26- and now it fails on destroying tooltips.

I've done some researching and noticed some clues to point to the recent modifications to the 'destroy' function:

1st: Line 1345
self.destroyed = !(self.rendered = FALSE);

After that, when inner 'process' function runs, the if(self.rendered) code in line 1353 is always false, and the tooltip is not fully destroyed.

2nd: Line 1344
if(self.destroyed) { return; }

In IE is false, but in Chrome is true, so the destroy never is procesed in that browser.

3rd: In my code, I had to force the immediate param to get the process function executed.
else { elem.qtip('destroy', true); }

If not, process function never gets invoked through hide().

I hope this information helps to find a solution. Meanwhile, returning to v2.0.1-20-, which works just fine
