Just started working with sliders and I can see a fill value but not the slider. If I set the slider red and the fill transparent I see nothing. If I make the fill blue I see blue but no red slider. Probably something small that I am missing...
I am tweaking coils in a filter circuit, where each is tweaked to raise the Q value. So my goal is to have 2 sliders, one that fills to show the current value and a separate slider that gets bumped up to the max value reached and doesn't go back down.
In the attached I have hooked up 5 sliders with different fill types just so I can try to see the slider. If and when that works as I hope I will bundle 2 values for the max and current values.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sounds like you want to customize how your control looks. You can change the appearance of any part of a control here is an example.
Maybe it is not a bug but until I customized the control the slider was not visible at all. Seems that if it can be turned on in the properties, etc it should be visible without having to create a custom control.
Thanks for noticing and replying to my post, even though the solution had been accepted.
I looked at the vertical pointer slide. Its slider looks like a control to me. It is also bullet shaped and largely outside the fill area. I could cram it into the fill area but I want a rectangular bar to lay on top of the fill or float if the fill drops. Perhaps there is a way to change the bullet shape but it is not making itself apparent to me.
My solution was use the progress bar, first slider w/ colored fill & transparent slider. Add a 2nd slider, transparent fill and a contrasting slider. The slider had to be filled to make it visible.
Yup- Pretty small only a pixel high (Made it hard to resize too)
Glad you found a good plan to go forward!
