Could slider grid take into account slider setup?


(thomas) #1

Situation
In the below example, there are 4 rulers

  • the first and third sliders allow for 1 and 2 integers
  • the second and fourth sliders allow for integers between 0 and 4 included

Issue (minor)

The grid is uniform for all sliders. The UI does not allow the end user to understand what values are allowed.

Proposal

The grid of the slider could, in case of integers, reflect the setup. For instance:

  • the first and third sliders with one stick at each end
  • the second and fourth sliders with five sticks

You are referring to the vertical tickmarks on the slider rail? Yeah, I agree they should show the exact grip positions if there’s very few allowed values. Definitely something that needs to happen for sliders in future versions.

Yes, the vertical tickmarks on the slider rail. I llok forward to future versions.
