GUI: Speech & subtitles button
|Reported by:||criezy||Owned by:||sev-|
I don't like much the button to toggle between "Speech only", "Speech and Subtitles" and "Subtitles only". I think it is confusing. It looks like a push button and usually push buttons are used to trigger actions. And the standard is that the label should describe the action that will be performed when clicking on the button.
Here you want to set an option and not perform an action. Also more importantly the user might be confuse, thinking that if the label is currently "Text and Subtitles" this will be what he will get by clicking on the button (and if I am not mistaken this is what he currently has and not what he will get).
When you want to select one item from a list of mutually exclusive items you usually have either a combo box or radio buttons. I tend to prefer radio buttons for a short list. On the other end I like homogeneity and currently you are only using combo boxes in the ScummVM GUI.
Another reason why the current button is not good in my opinion is that you see only the current setting and not the alternatives. You don't know what are all the alternatives until you have clicked several times and came back to the original setting, at which point you might still need to click several times to select the one you want.
