Re: [cdt-dev] CMainTab ui

"Automatic" doesn't seem to be much more descriptive than "Auto". "Selected automatically" would be slightly better although it's still not clear what criteria is used for selection.

My 2c.

I looks as picture above, but says Automatic instead of Auto
API is not broken but crippled,
in a way if somebody used button as API and did something to button itself - it won't work anymore, except
if subclasses overrode main page and did not create this button - Automatic item would not be shown to preserve intended behaviour.
Main functionality remains - if user set it page will set two variables - buildId to automaticcally calculated value and autoBuild to true.

I would like to get rid of extra checkbox in CMainTab ui for build config selector
called "Select configuration using 'C/C++ Application'" and move it to Combo instead

This is how it looks now

What I am proposing is this:

So "Auto" in this case is same choice as previous checkbox but it uses less space
and less confusing

It also by discretion of the launch config delegate to interpret this value and pick
configuration based on some other logic (rather then application path only)


(Note: this button is API unfortunately, so I am planning to keep it but make invisible,
programmatic logic of enabling/disabling it will be supported)
