Horizontal slider [SOLVED]

Postby fezztah » Sat May 10, 2008 12:08

Hi, I started putting a horizontal slider together and it looks fine and works correctly when I mouse click on the track ( the thumb moves towards the mouse - left and right). However, when I click on the thumb itself and try to drag, it doesn't move.

I saw a thread about needing to write your own classes, but then there was another thread where it looked like the required code had been added. Yes, I do have the latest code update, as mentioned in that thread. I figured as it's nearly working, the code is there and I'm just not setting it up properly?

Here's the looknfeel:

Code: Select all

Oops, I missed the error in the cegui log - shame on me :)


I put "HorizFree" and it should be "HorzFree", with that change it works fine.
