In Cheese we'd like to have something that I'd call ButtonGroup,
ToggleButtonGroup or RadioButtonGroup, something like a breadcrumb
(see e.g. screenshots at but without the
breadcrumb logic. Maybe the breadcrumb could be a subclass of
this/these widget/widgets.
We would use it in the toolbar in the "mode selector"
(, currently we use three toggle
buttons related to three radio actions but it would be great to style
them as a single widget.
Anyone else would like a widget like this?
