#21691 new enhancement

Group inside group not properly allocated within the menu

Reported by: mrgenie Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: template_report external tagging preset Cc:


What steps will reproduce the problem?

I'll describe this plugin using examples.
Example one, what works:

This will show up under "Annotation" properly - nothing wrong.

But -
and then

They should both be under the group "Philippines" and they do! But, but, there's a bogus group "Philippines" created under the group "Philippines" and it shouldn't of course!

I tried then to put it under "Transport" and same happens..
A bogus "Transport" empty is created under "Transport"

I spend literally 6 hours to figure it out, and I did find the reason for this bug

The reason:
as long as it's just "items" that are being merged with another preset no bogus groups are created.

The moment you have "groups" defined in the 2nd preset, that's when JSOM creates this bug of having a bogus menu entry - empty- useless under the original group. basically it copies the parent group to a child as empty bogus group.

And ANY group under group creates this bug.

Its a trivial bug, who knows the code will be quick in finding the bug and fix it. I know if this were c# or C++ I'd be able to fix it within minutes - sadly I don't do Java nor do I know the code of JOSM so hoping a more experienced java dev of JOSM will fix it in a timely manner.


note: Please don't move this to "presets" component as the bug is in the core of JOSM not handling the groups inside presets properly.

What is the expected result?

What happens instead?

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

Screenshots and the corresponding source code lines would be useful. As far as I know, identical names for items and groups can lead to problems and are not (fully) supported, yet, see #12716. I only found #10056 for request on exchange between presets. Looks like an enhancement request.

Well it is basically working.. it just creates this "bogus 2nd entry" .. that's my only complaint really..

showing the double/duplicated/bogus/empty entry that's being created

I added here a small screenshot what I mean.

You can merge 2 into the "philippines" as parent group..
It works without a problem in the actual merged groups. both work just fine

Just the "Philippines" created inside the "Philippines" is useless/empty/unnecessary

it's basically just an optical glitch..

I'm sure a java programmer who knows exactly where in the code to look for, can easily spot this "2nd bogus" entry and prevent it from being created since the merging itself actually works
