Place the "Group by" tab at the top

Issue #108 resolved
Lübbe Onken created an issue

This is just a small usability enhancement.

All the actions in TestInsight take place near the top of the window (Select Tests/Start/Stop/Clear/Filter/...). Only the "group by ..." tab is at the bottom.

I have the TestInsight Explorer on one half of my secondary monitor and I turn different Test/Fixtures on/off many times during a day, also toggling between tabs. This change would save (at least me) a lot of mouse-meters every day. What do others think? Would this change make sense to you as well?

    What about changing it like the test explorer in VS? It cycles through the different options (currently TI would have 2 of them - Class/Fixture and Outcome/Type).


    That way I could also get rid of the ugly tab component being used which does not automatically work well with the new dark theme.

    Yes, that's a good idea. And please add a magnifying glass to the search bar too. I tend to forget that I can search for test cases, because right now it's just empty space ;)

    I was considering adding hint text to the edit because it auto filters and thus does not need a button (the magnifying glass in VS is a button)

    Very nice indeed. It's quick and only my muscle memory from 1.1.5 which makes me move the mouse down often, hasn't adapted yet. Sometimes I feel that the icon should change its state too, but the different appearance of the tree should be enough indication what the user is looking at.
