Slider.HandleGraphic

int Slider.HandleGraphic;

The handle graphic can be set to 0, which will draw the default grey handle.

Example:

Display("sldHealth's handle is sprite %d", sldHealth.HandleGraphic);

displays the sldHealth slider's handle image

Compatibility: Supported by AGS 3.1.0 and later versions.

See Also: Slider.BackgroundGraphic, Slider.HandleOffset


Slider.HandleOffset

int Slider.HandleOffset;

Gets/sets the offset at which the handle image is drawn. This value is initially set up in the editor.

Slider.Max

int Slider.Max;

Gets/sets the maximum value of the specified GUI slider.

When changing the maximum, the slider's Value will be adjusted if necessary so that it lies within the Min - Max range.

An error occurs if you try to set the Max to a lower value than the Min.

Example:

sldHealth.Max = 200;

sets the maximum value of the sldHealth slider to 200.

See Also: Slider.Min, Slider.Value


Slider.Min

int Slider.Min;

Gets/sets the minimum value of the specified GUI slider.

When changing the minimum, the slider's Value will be adjusted if necessary so that it lies within the Min - Max range.

An error occurs if you try to set the Min to a higher value than the Max.

Example:

sldHealth.Min = 0;

sets the minimum value of the sldHealth slider to 0.

See Also: Slider.Max, Slider.Value


Slider.Value

(Formerly known as GetSliderValue, which is now obsolete)
(Formerly known as SetSliderValue, which is now obsolete)

int Slider.Value;

Gets/sets the value of the specified GUI slider. You would usually use this in the slider's OnChange event handler to find out what value the player has changed the slider to, in order to process their command.

When setting the value, the new value must lie between the MIN and MAX settings for the slider, as set up in the GUI editor.

Example:

System.Volume = sldVolume.Value;

will set the audio volume to the value of the slider sldVolume.
