Jump to: navigation, search

The settings slider control is used in the settings screens for when an option is best specified on a sliding scale. You can choose the position, size, and look of the slider control. It is basically a cross between the button control and a slider control. It has a label and focus and non focus textures, as well as a slider control on the right.
