#11047 closed enhancement (fixed)

changeset: no length check for the source field

Description (last modified by Don-vip)

apparently there is no length check for the "source" field for changesets although it looks like the "comment" field. So, it also should behave like it.

  • Revision: 7906
  • Linux
  • Java version: 1.8.0_31, Oracle Corporation, OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. make some data changes and click the upload button
  2. type too many letters (more than 255, IIRC) into the source field
  3. hit "upload"

What is the expected result?

the same like for the "comment" field: not even possible to enter too many characters

What happens instead?

error from server which leads to the error message:

Error message(untranslated): ChangesetTag 28523682,source: v: is too long (maximum is 255 characters) ("josm bug 11047 - lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll")

Workaround: At least the (long) comment is saved by JOSM, so it can be recovered with the drop-down button and shortened.

fix #11047 - changeset: no length check for the source field

comment:3 by aseerel4c26, 9 years ago

thanks, works! tested with josm 7995.

While testing it I noticed a small inconvenience: there is no user feedback why pasting a long text does not work. It just is not pasted. However, likely it is not worth the effort to implement an unobtrusive user feedback (e.g. a flashing red right text box border) if too long text is tried to type or paste.

Quite of the same importance: you are still able to enter too long text in the second tab of the changeset upload window. If you enter a too long source there (you get no feedback that it is too long) and switch back to the first tab, then you complete source is emptied. All work compiling that long source comment is lost. Since very very few users will try to enter such long source comments AND use the raw tag editing of changesets, I think this is also not worth a new bug report.

(no new bug reports)
