I saw a similar post addressing this for $variable$ types.
My problem is that i am using <$set> w/ a filter to get the tiddler title based on a name passed to it, which restricts me to the <<variable>> usage. The below macro works great if the title passed is a single word such as 'Alarmed'. the modal will pop up w/ the tiddler. If i pass a mult-word title such as "Alarmed and Dangerous" the modal will fail. Any suggestions much appreciated. --Kenn \define modal_link(title:none) <$set name="tit" value=$title$>
<$set name="myTid" filter='[!is[system]regexp:<tit>]'> <$button>
<$action-sendmessage$message="tm-modal" *$param=<<myTid>>*/> <<myTid>> </$button>
</$set> </$set>
\end

Hi,

Try this:

<$set name="tit" value="""$title$"""> see: http://tiddlywiki.com/#Macro%20Calls%20in%20WikiText -m -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "TiddlyWiki" group.

My problem is that i am using <$set> w/ a filter to get the tiddler title

The below macro works great if the title passed is a single word such as
'Alarmed'. the modal will pop up w/ the tiddler.
If i pass a mult-word title such as "Alarmed and Dangerous" the modal will
fail.
<$set name="tit" value=$title$> Put quotes around$title$, like this: <$set name="tit" value="$title$">

the $param$ syntax is a *lexical subtitution* done upon entry to the macro.
Thus, if you pass in a parameter value containing spaces (e.g., "two
words"), then the substitution, without the surrounding quotes, would be:

<$set name="tit" value=two words> resulting in a value of tit="two", with "words" being ignored, rather than resulting in tit="two words" Post by m***@gmail.com <$set name="myTid" filter='[!is[system]regexp:<tit>]'>

So I have hit another stopping block.

one of the things this modal needs to do, is pass a tiddler title that has
a transclusion in it.
I read a previous post about needing to defer the transclusion, and i
believe I have done so.. but it refuses to work.

The first call to the macro works great as i have manually typed in the
tiddler title.
The second call which uses a {{!!field}} transclusion fails.

If i remove the > from the <$action-sendmessage> (i do this a lot as a debug step), The HTML even loks the same between them: * <$action-sendmessage $message="tm-modal"$param="Spell/DnD5e/Animal
Friendship" /*

Here is the code:

<$macrocall$name="render_modal_link" title="""$name$"""
tidd="""$tiddler$"""/>
\end

<$button> <$action-sendmessage $message="tm-modal"$param="$tidd$" />
$title$ -
</$button> \end <<modal_link "Animal Friendship" "Spell/DnD5e/Animal Friendship">> <<modal_link "{{!!slot0}}" "Spell/DnD5e/{{!!slot0}}">> Post by m***@gmail.com I saw a similar post addressing this for$variable$types. My problem is that i am using <$set> w/ a filter to get the tiddler title
based on a name passed to it, which restricts me to the <<variable>> usage.
The below macro works great if the title passed is a single word such as
'Alarmed'. the modal will pop up w/ the tiddler.
If i pass a mult-word title such as "Alarmed and Dangerous" the modal will
fail.
Any suggestions much appreciated.
