Description

When I do a categorized classification, I must of course choose the column to create it. When I press 'classify' QGIS creates classes for all unique values in that field. Good!

Now the labels are string values identical to the class values. Often good, but not always.

I'm having a huge file containing two fields:
- class codes (int)
- class names (str)

I'd like to classify on the codes (it is quicker I think) and fill the labels by the names. I understand that possibly not all codes have the same label values in all records, but that is up to the user. QGIS could just map the first label it finds.

Raymond found out that it is easier to just classify on the text field, there is just a minimal time difference in rendering
