Description

when a value relation is set, if a entry starts with an accented letter, then in the combo box this entry will show at the bottom of the list.

There is also a general issue with lists of numbers in the widgets, that are treated always as text, and this hurts quite a lot the usability of such tools.

History

  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

What's shown in the combobox is supposed to be a description for the key used in the attribute. Isn't using a number as description and edge case?

  • Status changed from Feedback to Open
  • Affected QGIS version changed from 2.8.1 to master

but what about if the user "just" needs a combobox to allow choose quickly (and without errors) among a list of specific numbers? this is not an edge situation at all, and as it is now the user creates this list in the "value" column and gets a list that is ordered as text.
