Description Nate Graham 2018-02-27 05:13:09 UTC
Discover's new sort menu inappropriately uses checkboxes instead of radio buttons. This results in a really awkward interaction paradigm where you need to uncheck the existing sort order before you can check the other one. It's also just wrong: checkboxes are uses when multiple selection is allowed; when the items are mutually exclusive, the correct control is a set of ratio buttons.

Make it possible to support exclusive action groups

We need to find away to import 2.3 if available otherwise modelData.Controls.ActionGroup returns null.

Use an action group for the sort options

Otherwise we get ugly checkboxes.
Requires Qt 5.10.

I'm afraid those patches didn't resolve the issue for me. Both are committed, yet I still see checkboxes in Discover's sort menu.

Missed the patch for QQC2-desktop-style. Can verify that this is fixed now!
