#8071 closed enhancement (fixed)

mapcss concat() and cond()

Description (last modified by Polyglot)

This works:

text: rcn_ref;


text: tag(rcn_ref);

When the name tag is present, this also works:

text: concat(tag(rcn_ref), " ", tag(name));

Without a name tag, no text is shown, though.

So I tried this:

text: name?rcn_ref:concat(tag(rcn_ref), " ", tag(name));

and this:

text: cond(name,rcn_ref,concat(tag(rcn_ref), " ", tag(name)));

Would it be possible to simply add a blank string in concat() if the tag is not available.

That would be the most intuitive.

cond() doesn't work as I would expect it either.

The following works:

  text: concat(tag(rcn_ref),cond(has_tag_key(name), concat(" ", tag(name)),""));

This too:

  text: cond(has_tag_key(name),concat(tag(rcn_ref), " ", tag(name)),tag(rcn_ref));

It would be a lot simpler if empty tags were simply replaced by an empty string though.

I found an easier way to solve the problem: using different ::layers to show the different tags instead of trying to concatenate them.

Oh, I'm sorry. It wasn't clear to me whether it was appropriate to have reported it, since there was no reaction (except a more or less negative one, questioning whether it was supposed to work the way I expected it to work) and I managed to solve my problem in another way.

cond() is fine though.

I implemented it this way, but it kind of bothers me too.

In 6737/josm:

fix #8071 - MapCSS: skip null values in concat(), provide join(separator, value1, ..., valueN)
