Perspective - Slider

Component Palette Icon:


The Slider component lets the user drag an indicator along a scale to choose a value in a range. Enable the "show" and "interval" properties under "labels" to visually display the values within a range. The slider can be configured to orient horizontally or vertically with the "orientation" property.


Most Properties have binding options. For more information on Bindings, see Types of Bindings in Perspective. This section only documents the Props Category of properties. The other Categories are described on the Perspective Component Properties page.

    Component Events

    The Perspective Event Types Reference page describes all the possible component event types for Perspective components. Not all component events support each Perspective component. The Component Events and Actions page shows how to configure events and actions on a Perspective component. Component scripting is handled separately and can be accessed from the Component menubar or by right clicking on the component.
