Slider value corresponding to picture ring control


In principle there should be a nearly code-free version for the "PictureRing+Slider" combo.


We should be able to show the digital display of the picture ring, then customize the ring and replace the digital control with a slider, similar to the techniques reported in this discussion.


For some reason, I cannot replace the digital display of a picture ring with a silder in the control editor. I wonder if this is a bug? Can anyone get this to work?

Interesting!  The Ring controls digital displays look more like free labels than numeric controls. This applies to text rings as well as pict rings.


When you customize a knob, gauge, or slider, the digital display is the actual numeric part which can be repalced by other types of numeric controls. The knob or slider is just an image.  When you customize a ring, all the pieces seem to be images. No numerical part is there.


Someone from NI will need to let us know what is going on.
