    slider problem

    Is there a possibilety to have more then the standart 21 slider graphics for the sliders, especialy the SONGPOS, VIDEOPOS and VOLUME slider... my problem is my slider is 560px lang so it makes steps of 28px and that looks ****y! would like to have it some more "fluently"....

    thanx

    Not sure if this will intrest you, but you can do really "fluent" things in flash. (At least with volume) However, I don't think you can do it with sliders because they don't send out variables.

    ---> flash

    You can use the TRACKTIME and CURRENTTRACKTIME variables in flash to calculate the position of song/video ... for the volume there's also a variable.. there's currently no variables for most of the other sliders, but it would be easy to add them...

    Regarding the steps, I just made them the same as in MediaCar (compatibility).. but I could easily add a parameter into the slider style definition to set the number of steps to use with the slider (allowing you to use any number of images)... I still have to improve on the drawing of the background to (hopefully) get rid of flickering -- I have done a lot of research for this but VB sucks ...

    Would be great if you'd add the ability to set the number of steps of a slider!

    thanx btbe

    Both Dinasty and CDR have done this in their flash skins, You can probably ask a little help from them.

    Here is the basic idea, of course any other way will work too:

    Song position in swishscript

    It's probably best if you see it for yourself. I will through something together for you tonight and post it here to show you how it works and also the code to set the position of the song ect..
