Note  For a description and a complete list of UI Objects, see UI Objects.

A slider object that sends requests to the server.

Using this object you can execute customized Java code or generate events for the EVENTS interpreter, like with the user object, passing the object's name and the selected value.

Three versions are available:

  • slider: vertical slider with a label and an on/off button

  • sliderv: minimal vertical slider

  • sliderh: minimal horizontal slider

  • address: address passed to the Java callback method and event in EVENTS
  • position: the object's position. Use the pixels or rows and columns coordinates format
  • label: the text label on the button. Can contain HTML tags


(slider!<id> <address>; <position>; <label>)

(sliderv!<id> <address>; <position>)

(sliderh!<id> <address>; <position>)


(slider!myslider slider1; x10y20; Label)

(sliderv!myslider slider1; x10y20)

(sliderh!myslider slider1; x10y20)
