Solo Frames behavior

Post by mcallegari » Fri Jul 14, 2017 4:22 pm

I need to write this, cause with 4.11.0 I changed one tiny line of code that made some users unhappy.
Basically it affects the behavior of Buttons in Solo Frames.
For some reasons, over the years we ended up having cases where it was possible to have more than one button active at the same time in a Solo Frame.
While this allowed specific usage cases to be covered, it was clashing with the original idea written in the documentation:
A Solo Frame is almost exactly the same kind of a container as a normal Frame in that can hold various widgets and other frames inside. However, the difference with Solo Frame is that it treats any Buttons inside it differently by allowing only one button to be enabled at a time.
Attached a simple workspace showing what was possible (Chaser and Scenes in a Solo Frame). With 4.11.0 it doesn't work anymore.

So I decided to allow you to vote what you want. My opinion is not relevant here, as what counts the most for me is to have happy QLC+ users.

What about an option to choose what behaviour you want?

In this case I would say no.
I can't even image the description for the option in the configuration dialog.
