Please don't do this. I get the urge to have 'enable/disable' combo boxes, but they're really not that user friendly: you have to click them open, then select the option, while a checkbox is 1 click. I always hated the enable/disable combo boxes.
But perhaps I'm overlooking a usability aspect, so I'm curious what made you want them back? In my own software I'd never use a combobox if a checkbox would suffice so I'm curious why one would prefer the combobox Thanks.

Dude... just stop. It's an optional "ui_type" toggle. Design your shader UI how you want it designed. No one is forcing you to use this.

So... don't? Unless crosire implements it some other way, my request leaves the default behavior as a checkbox. What are you even complaining about?
I will never understand people complaining about someone else's feature request with "Please don't give us options!"
Oh you misunderstood me, it was meant for shader devs not to do this but to use checkboxes. If crosire wants to add this, that's fine, what I just wanted to know, which was a serious question, is: why would one want to use a combobox over a checkbox? (just to learn a reason for doing that, so e.g. I could use that reason to use comboboxes too if that reason applies).
My remark 'don't do this' for shader devs was purely so I'm not confronted with shaders that use comboboxes over checkboxes, that's all. If you have a good reason though, I'd really like to know, you brought it up so you must have a reason why you'd like to have this, so I'd like to learn why so I understand it better.
So, just curious about your reason why you'd want this so I have a better understanding what the use case could be/is

I mean... I already gave my partial reasons in the OP...

Seriously? Who cares?
You like checkboxes. Congrats. Continue to use them. There is no magical reason other than personal preference and the god-awful aesthetic appearance of a left aligned checkbox breaking up center aligned elements.
If this bothers you so much in the future, if you see a shader using combo mode, feel free to take all of 2 minutes removing the "ui_type" from the booleans.
crosire, this is your forum, so of course it's your decision, but if you'd like to lock this thread down now, it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.
