    Does anyone know if there's a way to refresh or update the tooltip of a spell after changing a real or integer value in it?

    Normally a chain lightning spell uses <ACcl,DataA1> to refer to it's damage. But after changing the Real field via triggers, the tooltip text still states the same damage. I know I can change this by changing the tooltip field as well via triggers but that's going to become a lot of work it seems.

    Is there a way to simply make it update?

    PS: I already tried setting the string field to the same, it didn't work. It just writes <ACcl,DataA1> instead of the damage.

    I think the datafields needs to be referenced to your "custom data". You need to change to codefields to match the custom data IIRC.
