Feature request #9279
Preselect field in Label dialogue

- preselect the first layer data field (not lat/lon/alt)
- display a list of first 1..3 first items of this field as demo text
I also recommend to move the demo field down to the bottom of dialog, below the preferences frame. This might improve the workflow, as it triggers the input-process-output methology. I also recommend to display a transparency pattern in the sample widget, to avoid the interpretation as a regular edit-box with a white background and to allow the user to check style visibility on bright and dark background at twice.

How about the QgsVectorLayer.displayField() or QgsVectorLayer.displayExpression() as default?

@noone noone are you aware of the ux mailinglist we created recently?
I added it to your usability wiki page:
Would it not be better to discuss this a little on such list, and then come with a firm feature/dev request?

@Matthias I don't know about this widgets, but why not, if they are in use already :)
Another idea would be to skip the checkbox but use the empty combobox to indicate that labeling is currently disabled.
@Richard Only because of your post, so I sended out an hello to the ML :) Thank you!
