[Bf-committers] uiList: ctrl-clic-edit name

For multiview I have two items in the list that are not rename-able (i.e.,
left and right).
Is there a way to make them non-clickable (or at least to manually write
the rename function), while the others views are still

> Hi devs,

> The only change needed from user POV is to add the "rename_propname"
> parameter to its template_list() call.
> The proposed solution is a bit hackish (but works perfectly afaict), but
> I can't see any who wouldn't, given the fact that we want to avoid

> * In uilist handler, detect ctrl-lmb clic on a listrow button;
> * Mark the uiList as pending renaming on related item;
> * In draw function, change first LISTLABEL of the relevant item in a TEX
> one, and add a fake event to force uilist handler to be run again.
> * Back in uilist handler, when a rename is pending, try to find our TEX
> button (which abuses UI_BUT_COLOR_CUBIC as marker) and activate it.
> As usual, any feedback is much welcomed! :)
