#3841 new enhancement

Validator: show meaningful tooltips

Reported by: mjulius Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core validator Version:
Keywords: Cc:

Description (last modified by mkoniecz)

In the list of Validation errors tooltips are shown when hovering over error categories. These tooltips seem to be always the same as the name of the error itself. This is not at all helpful.

It would be more useful if the tooltips showed a little more extended description like the ones from http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JOSM/Plugins/Validator#Validations

For me (as of today) the most mysterious one is "highway without a reference - Suspicious tag/value combinations". I thought that it is about missing ref key but I encountered it for way that had it.

Replying to Bulwersator:

I think that might be a bug with motorways as I noticed it happening on several Interstates here in the US when I ran the validator. I've reported that separately as #9366.

Would it be helpful (and increase chance of implementing this) to provide set of tooltips texts? Maybe by improving http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JOSM/Plugins/Validator#Validations

I also think that it would be a good idea to further expand this and add "explain" button next to "fix" in validator.

I remember that one of the most confusing things at start of using JOSM was avalanche of validator complaints (some were not even my fault bad something that was wrong even before my edit). I remember disabling it, I guess that at least part of users do the same and later never enable it again. A bit of explanation would be IMHO a good idea.
