Text on disabled buttons should not be selectable
This has been done for checkbox/radio labels as well by @jasondscott. (5d5e818)
Are there more button types where we should disable user-select? For instance selectmenu.
Should @MauriceG his change go in the theme.css or in structure (button.css)? Maybe we can limit it to one rule with a bunch of selectors.
+1 for changing this for anything with button markup. @MauriceG - mind re-working?
@toddparker - That includes list items. Text in those should still be selectable.
What is including list items?
And: Text on list items with links should be selectable?
Sorry, I should have been more clear.
Anything with button markup means listview buttons as well. I don't think we should set user-select to none for buttons in a list. Mostly because of read-only lists and list with formatted text, but even a basic linked list could contain information you want to select.
With Safari on windows I'm unable to select any text in a listview with links eg: http://jquerymobile.com/test/docs/lists/lists-formatting.html
You can't select a specific part of the text, but when you start with mousedown outside the list item you can select the text.
Anyway, I am just suggesting to not set user-select none as a default for listview buttons. Not saying we have to improve the selectability.
BTW - Read-only lists are currently not buttons, but will have button class as from 1.2.
I've no mouse on my mobile devices ;-)
I was wondering about read only lists are buttons.
Will they look like buttons in 1.2 or be buttons without function?
I saw your new PR. Read-only lists don't get ui-btn-text, only ui-btn-up-x for styling so that won't be an issue.
