Description Nate Graham 2021-04-19 18:37:25 UTC
So the text just gets cut off instead.

Trivial test case:

import QtQuick 2.15
import QtQuick.Controls 2.15 as QQC2

Item {
    width: 400
    height: 200

    QQC2.CheckBox {
        anchors {
            verticalCenter: parent.verticalCenter
            left: parent.left
            right: parent.right
            margins: 10

        text: "This is a very long piece of text that really should be rewritten to be shorter, but sometimes life just isn't that simple."
Comment 1 Nate Graham 2021-04-19 18:40:08 UTC
This is probably caused by using a QQuickStyleItem to render the whole control. So the text gets rendered by that element and fails to be affected by any of the typical text constraints.
Comment 2 Nate Graham 2021-04-19 19:26:12 UTC
RadioButton.qml seems to be implemented with only the radio button itself using a QQuickStyleItem, and the label, mnemonic, and focus indicator are done in QML. Perhaps we need to do the same for CheckBox.qml.

[CheckBox] Rewrite to be nearly identical to RadioButton

Right now CheckBox uses a QQuickStyleItem to render the whole control.
This breaks its ability to elide long text.

This commit implements it in the same way as RadioButton, which fixes
