Description

Hello there,

Is there currently plan to add a persistent history window to the left side dialog panel? It would help save a lot of clicks when doing multiple history checks on elements. Thanks!

to the left side

Do you mean the right side? No there are no plans atm. It wouldn't really save clicks as you can't simply select an object in the mapview and instantly see its history, because the history requires and separate download action.

Yeah that's exactly what I meant, too bad there is no official support coming.. but is there way to do this via plug-in?

What would you expect in that window? The complete history of each object? It would take minutes to download that even for a small area as each object requires one api call.
What is wrong the current behaviour of shortcut Ctrl+H to download history of selected objects?

Oh the hotkeys work just fine, I'm just the history of the element(s) I'm currently highlighting, but it's still a chore even with hotkeys if I want to check hundreds of elements' history.

Sure, checking the history of hundreds of elements is hard work. What kind of dialog would make that easier?

comment:6 in reply to:  5 Changed 17 months ago by anonymous

I'm mostly interested in seeing the list of user name(s) who have edited this element in the past, so it would be very nice to see user name/date got featured in the dialog. Thinking maybe just a miniaturized version of the current history dialog window with tabs, with a button to open the full dialog window.

Something like the "selection list panel" where a double click would open the history of that object?

Not sure what the "selection list panel" is.. but it would be nice if a single click on the object and the history window on the right side panel will update its history automatically.

OK, I think now I get the idea. I don't see a way to shrink the existing dialog that much, but maybe we could introduce a new map mode so that an open history dialog is updated when the selection is changed?

Yes, that would be a great alternative as well

Actually, we used to have a very limited toggle dialog. That one was removed via #6909 (my proposal).

(Just found the corresponding commit using git log --grep=history --diff-filter=D src/org/openstreetmap/josm/gui/dialogs)
