Description

Instead of two buttons (Expand tree+Collapse tree) a single toggling (on/off) button
could be better

Furthermore, the full stop at the end of the description should be removed for consistency

Hi,
Yes, I agree, one button would be better.
But i'm also wondering if it won't be nice to have an intermediate state, showing only the layer name and the feature's ID. I join a screenshot.
So, we'll have three states, changing as the user clicks on the button:
- first one showing only the name of the layer(s) -- the current collapse tree mode;
- second one i presented above;
- and the third showing all the attributes of all the features matched -- the current expand tree mode.

In the case of 2 options only(expand/collapse), should the icon change when toggled it is toggled or use a single icon?

In the case of 3 options, do you have a suggestion for an icon?

Not sure what you mean by this.

Also, if there are 3 states the same should apply for the "New results will be expanded by default" button.

Re: full stop
/s/Expand tree./Expand tree
etc.

Re: toggling icons
Better if they change.

Re: 3 states
Sorry, no suggestion.

#8 Updated by Etienne Tourigny over 6 years ago

I guess I could implement the 2-state case with changing icons, adding a 3rd state would be considered a new feature
