The path of functions located in nested dictionaries is missing a dot between keys in the function viewer


When a function is added to a dictionary within a dictionary, then the ‘Open Script Function’ viewer menu is opened (Alt + F ), the path is displayed incorrectly - it misses the dots between dictionary ‘levels’. As is shown in the example below, it displays the path as Dict1Dict2.FunctionA() instead of Dict1.Dict2.FunctionA().

Nesting the dictionaries further results in each key being shown directly after each other without the dots being added between:


  1. Create a script, which contains a nested dictionary (2 or more levels deep) that has a function contained within. (Example code below)
  2. Open the function viewer (Alt + F )
  3. Observe the path being shown incorrectly.
2 Level Nested Dictionary Code Example
local Dict1 = {
	["Dict2"] = {)

Dict1.Dict2.FunctionA = function()

Dict1.Dict2.FunctionB = function()
5 Level Nested Dictionary Code Example
local Dict1 = {
	["Dict2"] = {
		["Dict3"] = {
			["Dict4"] = {
				["Dict5"] = {}

Dict1.Dict2.Dict3.Dict4.Dict5.FunctionA = function()

Dict1.Dict2.Dict3.Dict4.Dict5.FunctionB = function()

Requiring a module containing the nested dictionaries also exhibits the same problem:
