"Sort" option in Message list
« on: November 07, 2015, 04:55:29 pm »
Kostya:
After some tests and practice in the latter days I would appreciate it if the currently selected option (in: Message list > Menu > Sort >...) would be marked, for example a gray background.

Additionally, it should be possible to save the selection as a default directly in this screen by activating "Save as default" as a checkbox.

I think with these modifications this option could be more user-friendly.

Kindest regards
Mikeone

I don't think Android will let an app change a menu item's backgrounds. Checkboxes *appear* to be possible (though I've never tried it).

Okay,  but "Checkboxes" are already in AquaMail's menus.

However,  Navigation drawer items could be different from "normal" menu... 8)

"Navigation drawer" is not a menu.

That's what I had feared.

But wait, I hadn't mentioned the scariest part yet!

menus are rendered "by the system" (Android itself), and their styling is defined "by the system".

Checkboxes I can try to do, will take a look once I'm done with this thing I need to rewrite...
