#3127 closed enhancement (fixed)

make "too many items" warning in data layer optional

As OSM gets more and more detailed, that "too may items in this area" warning pops up more frequently, even in highest zoomlevels.

I didn't ever experience any problems on my side, neither with firefox nor with chrome/chromium (the latter tested with >6000 items), so it's rather annoying to click "load data" whenever I move the map a bit. It would be nice to have at least an option to switch off this warning or setting a higher threshold than just 100. An automatic alternative could be based on the user-agent submitted by the browser and a "known-good" list of browsers behaving fine.

Does changing one line of code really takes so long? Please fix this!

Hey Holger - it doesn't take very long at all. If you can send a github pull request with the problem fixed properly, I'm sure it'll be solved in no time. Thanks for your help! :)

The limit has now been increased for most browsers - only IE6 and IE7 are still restricted to 100 items.
