# Slider

Sliders enable a convenient way to experiment with mathematical constructions. In the example below there is a slider s which takes values between 1 and 5. The value of the slider can be accessed via s.Value(). The x-coordinate and the y-coordinate of the point A depend on this value s.Value():

The slider needs the following input parameters:

• [[x1,y1],[x2,y2],[min,start,max]]
• [x1,y1]: first point of the ruler
• [x2,y2]: last point of the ruler
• min: minimum value of the slider
• start: initial value of the slider
• max: maximum value of the slider

Properties:

• snapWidth: distance between two values. (snapWidth:1: slider with integer values)
