Hi @alexxcons, I am happy to present my latest work to you
Fixes #925 (closed)
Some notes regarding the implementation:
The "Search for Files..." button already has the described behavior, so looking up its code may help to implement this enhancement.
I thought that myself and then wondered why this is so difficult to implement. After a while I recognized I have to use another button type called
GtkRadioToolButton. Maybe it's possible to implement the buttons as
GtkToggleToolButton by disabling the signals temporarily but I have done it the official way without any workarounds now.
thunar_window_location_toolbar_create() I have to determine which radio view button is active on thunar startup. I tried to get this info by
window->view_type and also by calling
thunar_window_view_type_for_directory(). But that didn't work because I assume the values aren't initialised that early. Because of that I compare directly the string stored in xfconf like for example
!g_strcmp0 (type_name, "ThunarIconView").
thunar_window_create_toolbar_radio_item_from_action() is a bit bigger regarding lines of code than the similar function
thunar_window_create_toolbar_toggle_item_from_action(). That is because the is no helper function in libxfce4ui like
The radio buttons also behave correctly when the view changes with different tabs and also when the focus changes in the split view.
