Is your question about how slider components work or is your question about how to sum the values that the sliders are set to by the user? Or is it something else?
Sorry for not being specific. Here is the concept:
First Slider would have probably three or four ticks set for it through the settings in FlashPro and the start would be $0- $2M - $3M - last tick $5M.
Another slider blow it would have three ticks with $120K - $160K - $200K.
Whatever value the slider button is over; that value would be populated in a text box/field next to the slider then naturally there would be a "Total" text box/field adding up what values are in the text box/fields next to each slider.
A viewer is seeing what possible income could be achieved.
Over time I would add in more sliders based on new or more information.
Thanks for checking this out.
OK. Here's a Flash help file on how to set up a slider component: Adobe ActionScript 3.0 * Use the Slider component
Here's a tutorial on displaying the value set by a slider component: Code for Food: Using the Slider component: Part 1
For your third value display, the sum of the first two, you just need to add a line to the code for the second slider to show the sum in a third textField.
Does that help?
Thanks for the information.
I see information I can already figure out from the "properties" of the slider like setting min and max values and the amount of ticks among other settings.
I am not seeing or maybe I have skimed over it; any way of assigning specific values to certain tick areas of the slider. Also not showing any numeric amounts until certain tick marks are slide over.
Maybe I missed this altogether.
You can set the tickInterval and/or the snapInterval value in the Properties window to set the range in the slider. However neither of these will put a number on the screen along the slider. If you want to have values show up along the slider you'll have to add those to the stage yourself either as text or graphics.
