#18992 new defect

Tagging Preset: No information exchange between linked presets

Reported by: skyper Owned by: team
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: template_report tagging preset link Cc:

Description (last modified by skyper)

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Have a untagged way selected
  2. Open any highway preset
  3. Check oneway (checked)
  4. Click on highway/street/road restriction and look at oneway check (unchecked)
  5. Check toll (checked) and apply
  6. Have a look at toll check (unchecked)

What is the expected result?

  • oneway is checked in both preset after 3.
  • toll is checked in both preset after 5.

What happens instead?

  • oneway is not checked in 4. and 5.
  • toll is not checked in 6.

In fact all duplicate keys in the linked preset will never have an effect and are silently ignored.

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible.

I stumbled over this creating the Presets/MastAndTower and first ignored it as we could say, having the same key in two presets and linking from one to another is not a good idea but as it happens already within defaultpresets, I called it a defect. I did not check all available tagging presets but name, ref and operator are candidates for the same issue so not only checkboxes are a problem.

I would like to add a preset_link to the "Name" preset from almost all cases where name=* is present in defaultpresets but this ticket rather prevents it for now.

See #19392 for a similar problem with selection.

As more and more presets include preset_links and it is almost impossible to prevent any duplicate key in the linked preset, it would be nice, if this could be fixed.

This is impossible to solve in the present state of affairs, because the dialogs do not talk to each other but each dialog talks only to the DataSet. The second dialog opens at a time when the first dialog has not yet written the changed data back to the DataSet, so the second dialog cannot know.

In #21851 I proposed a rewrite of the preset system that doesn't have this limitation: the dialogs talk through handles and the handles can be connected either to the DataSet or to another dialog. It would then be easy to implement this function.
