#11278 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Allow references to previous matches in validator rules

Reported by: Dakon Owned by: Dakon
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core validator Version: tested
Keywords: template_report mapcss Cc:


I would like to do the following checks in validator:

-match everything that has the same foo and bar values:


-match something that has the same tag as it's parent

way[foo] € node[{1}]

One probably needs a different notation for the second one to allow referencing both own matches as well as parent ones: way[foo] € node[{parent.1}][bar][baz={2.value}]

I don't get how I could create validator rules that way. Could you give me an example of a rule that matches e.g. highways that have identical foo and bar tags (highway=primary foo=baz bar=baz)?

ok, not with classes, but should be possible. See the text below the table at (However I'm not sure if this is availible for rules. I did not test)

So you example should be *[highway=primary][foo=baz][foo=*bar]

comment:8 Changed 8 years ago by Dakon

At least [foo=*bar] works. I still need a way to do that for ∈ matches.

We have the MapCSS functions parent_tag(key) as well as child_tag(key). It should be possible using those, e.g. way[foo] > node[tag("foo")=parent_tag("foo")] {}.

In 8784/josm:

see #11278 - Add test case w.r.t. parent_tag

This checks whether the child's tag equals the parent's tag.
