CMake-Gui | Merge the configure/generate button

For a long time I would press the configure button then the generate button.

Later I realized you just have to press the generate button.


In order to avoid confusion there should only be 1 button.

I realize configure / generate are technically 2 different steps. However, that is advanced functionality that usually doesn’t matter to most users.

If we want to keep them separate. They should only be separate if advanced is toggled to ON.



Repeating “Configure” multiple times before generating is a normal part of the cmake-gui workflow. One might need to edit cache entries and re-configure to adjust options and such.

Gotcha :+1:

I knew something felt off. You are absolutely correct. It makes sense to have it be presented this way.
