I use a Gtk.IconView widget in my app to select different types of elements. The way the IconView works is the following:
- Do one click to select the item
- Do an additional double-click to activate the item
I've always found it confusing that an additional double click is needed, when most button-like widgets in the desktop just require a single click. Now I've just had feedback from a couple of users that find it confusing (someone thought it was a bug that clicking on the button "did nothing"), so I've decided to look into how to change that behaviour.
Ideally, I'd like the IconView to behave as follows:
- Hover to select an item (optional)
- Single-click activates the item
Now I haven't found anything obvious in the widget's properties to make it behave like that. Does anyone know how or if that could be achieved?
