Description Kayra Akman 2013-09-02 12:36:00 UTC
Folder selection dialog shows folder as a tree. To expand a folder, one needs to click on the tiny arrow to the left of the folder icon.

Double-clicking the icon or the folder name doesn't expand that folder but triggers the folder renaming mode.

On the other hand, file selection dialog works as expected, i.e. double-clicking folder names expands them.

PS: I don't know whether it is relevant but I have changed Dolphin's navigation setting to open files and  folders on double-clicking.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open folder selection dialog. (rekonq's default downlaod location folder, Clementine's music library dialog or Qt Creator's new project folder wizard page are some ways to open )
2. Double-click on the folder icon or folder name to expand that folder.
Actual Results:  
Renaming mode triggered.

Expected Results:  
Folder should be expanded to show contents.

I know that double click to folder item in a dialog box to select a folder doesn't cause a bug but double click to folder item could expand folder item.

When a user want select folder he doesn't need rename selected folder. The behaviour of the dialog box to select a folder should be changed.

This message could be included into the wish list.
