commented Jun 9, 2017

These commits should fix the following problems caused by #12125:

  • support string-based labels (not just id-based labels) for categories, groups and settings
  • fix handling of InfoBool conditions for enable and visible
  • treat settings (whose type is not action) as labels (new label control introduced)
  • fix action settings not properly being triggered
  • fix crash when changing settings with a complex setting callback handler
  • support option="close" for action settings

There are still other issues that need fixing which I will cover in separate PRs because they are more complex.

How Has This Been Tested?

Locally with add-ons provided by the people who reported above issues (thanks @basrieter and @primaeval).
