Description andreas_k 2017-04-18 06:45:25 UTC
priority- is implemented for DropdonwBox in a PriorityBox but not within a ContextContainer. So in the context related toolbar area priority- didn't work.

please make it possible to use DropdownBox in a ContextContainer where priority will work.

Have you tried placing PriorityBox within a ContextContainer child element per context, as i believe that should work fine, just like it works with multiple tabs of the tabbed implementation.

Please attach a sample test ui file if it didnt work?

The sample file didnt have PriorityHBox as a child of a ContextVBox. Well i've attached an amended version of what you provided and the functionality works now. I moved all the separators as child elements of PriorityHBox, as "DropdownBox should have only one child (eg. GtkBox) otherwise popup is not working correctly." - https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/NotebookBar/Implementation#PriorityHBox_and_DropdownBox

For some strange reason ContextVBox renders smaller than it really is, which makes all the collapsible sections being collapsed even though there is more than sufficient space. Not sure if this is an issue with how you designed the file or not.

Everything works if PriorityHBox is inside ContextVBox (but all parent containers have to be horizontally expandable). Example:
