Bug Description

I'm looking at this design:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AboutThisDevice?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=phone-storage.png

It has a widget like that:
[ By Name | By Size ]

I've tried to hack that with 2 buttons, but I'm not sure how to do the "round border on one side, sharp edges/one vertical line on the middle". Having to maintain the states/faking a pressed button is also a bit tedious... it feels like having a widget for that would be useful (especially if the pattern is recommended by design to "select a mode", which is an usecase file browsers and others UI might have)

Can you please see with design if this is the official design solution for this use case? Also is it going to be a recurring use case? If both are true then Calum can decide of its inclusion in the toolkit.
As for the implementation, it will require the new ubuntu shape (coming in a few weeks) that will let you chose the radius of each corner individually. That way you will be able to anchor 2 shapes next to each other.

For now we will use a collapsed OptionSelector instead. Later, Katie Taylor will consider toggle/filter controls for (a) filters in the Dash, (b) temperature C°/F° in the Weather app, and (c) sorting this table.
