Offer +/- or up/down controls on Slider Controls

WB70 12 months ago in Configuration & Settings • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 11 months ago 9

I'm not talking about little burgers.


The Slider functionality that was added for Tile Sizing, Tile Spacing and Corner Radius, it would be very beneficial to have a - on the far left and a + on the far right of the slider so that we have the ability to increase or decrease by 1.


Having to either tap or manually slide the slider is very difficult and trying to pinpoint an exact number takes quite some time. It's great for coming close to a number, and then being able to adjust 1 by one with plus or minus would be a great value add for everyone. I know I'm not the only one that this is tedious and cumbersome process for.


Thanks

Understood; but we had to focus on the immediate issues folks were reporting in some browsers with Sliders functioning inconsistently.


Input Boxes are completely reliable. We will keep an eye on this topic, but may have to reframe it now that the Sliders for Tile Styling are no longer in the app.

I'd much rather have the +/- option than an input box.

In Progress

We are replacing sliders on Panel Style page with input boxes. We hear that many people have trouble with sliders.


This patch will be released very soon.

Specific input boxes to enter a specific number works as well. I had only suggested + and - because the sliders we're already implemented.


I can only guess that there are probably a lot of inconsistencies or behavior within different browsers, OS's and devices.


The one slider for spacing was kind of cool because it actually has a gauge on it as you click across from 2, to 4 to 6. You can visually see the little grid on the slider.


Anyway, I'm good with a box to enter pixels. If it could default to the numbers keypad when pressing on the box that would be even better but not sure how realistic that would be with all the different device types out there.

On my Fire HD8 the Android native specialized numeric/symbol keyboard automatically appears. ... And, yup, this is also the behavior on my Android phone running Swiftkey.


What OS are you on, WB?

Lol, I didn't realize you guys had already implemented the boxes. I thought it was on hold / discussion still so I never checked.


I just opened a panel and the boxes are there. When I press a box, the numeric keypad indeed pops up for me as well.


I'm on Android 7.1.1


Thanks guys!

Insignia Tablet, Android 6.0.1 with Fully / Chrome pops the numeric / symbol keypad as well.

I now see a text entry box to type a number AND little up/down arrows on the right side for fine adjustments. Looks like the best of both worlds! Thanks!


P.S. I originally thought this was for the sliders in the panel for dimmers, but this is good too!
