Creating Date and Character Sliders
The Slider control is a numeric control by default. It can be configured to set date and character data.
The slider control by default allows you to select a numeric value in a range of numbers. But it can also be configured to select a date value from a range of date values, or a string value from a pre-defined list of choices (e.g. Poor, Average, Good).
This video below shows how to configure a Slider control as a numeric, character or date slider. It also shows how the range of allowed values (numeric and date sliders) or the list of choices (character sliders) can be dynamically changed at run-time.
