Taken from Peter Kahrel ScriptUI indenpendent documentation:
"On Macs, but not on Windows, you can create a vertical slider simply by setting its width to a smaller value than its height:"
var w = new Window ("dialog"); var slider = w.add ("slider", undefined, 0, 100); slider.size = "width: 30, height: 300"; w.show ();
Thanks pixxxel schubser, can you please confirm whether CS6 instead works fine with them, or what is the oldest version that supports them? I only have CC 2017 on Win10 virtualized with Parallels, and would rather prefer not to clog the virtual machine with the whole suite of versions, from CS6 up.
Kukurykus, Peter Kahrel targets chiefly InDesign – I've attached an image of PS CC 2017 from Windows, which proves vertical sliders work :-) BTW I've got in touch with him, and he confirms that it's a Photoshop-only thing (Win ID still doesn't support them). I logged that feature request in the past years, and I haven't discovered but very recently (this night) that it's been actually implemented.
I saw in his documentation comments something he got to know thanks to you. For sure he mentioned your name
Tomorrow at work I check how it works in CS6 if I won't forget. Now I can say that here with CS 5.1 I tested it probably at same time what @pixxxel schubser and got the same result he posted.
UPDATE: It's not better at work in CS6 than that was in home in CS5.1 (both Windows of course).
None as I know upto and including CS6, you would use a "scrollbar" instead. They only work on a Mac.
