for vector maps, it appears that the classification field is only accessible in "Unique Value":

- in "Single Symbol" the classification field selector is missing

- in "Graduated Symbol" it is there but no selection is possible (takes first column hardcoded)

- in "Continuous Color" it is there but also here no selection is possible (takes first column hardcoded)

Since it works for "Unique Value", it would be great to get this fixed (both 0.8 and 0.9).

I don't see this for a shapefile loaded directly, but I do see something like this for a delimited text layer loaded from the delimited text plugin.

The reason is that the delimited text plugin doesn't try to guess if data are numeric or character, and so assumes they are all character, and so the only renderer that can make sense of character data is the "Unique Value" one. The others need numeric values.

So, try this on a real shapefile vector layer.

The fix would involve some rewriting of the delimited text plugin to guess column types.

Hi Markus,

in "Single Symbol", there is no need to choose a classification field because all features are rendered the same

in "Unique Value", all fields should be available for classification

for "Graduated Symbol" and "Continuous Color", only fields with numeric types are accessible

Could you check if QGIS distinguishes numerical and non-numerical data types right? The type system improved in the 0.9 developer version thanks to Martins contributions.
