I have an HSlider that filters products displayed by min & max prices. When a thumb is pressed, the data tip shows the price at the slider point where the thumb sits at that moment.
My question: how would I reference those thumb data tip values so I can display them on labels above the slider?
In other words, I want the thumb data tip to remain visible to the user, not go away when the thumb is released
Any tips? (I don't mean data tips).
I did exactly this for an application; what I ended up doing was extending the slider control and adding two custom ToolTip objects to it (one for each thumb) and a listener for THUMB_DRAG to update the value and position of each object.
Fortunately, I was able to solve it in a simpler way. In my case, I already have a class called ProductFilter that carries all these values and I was able to get them from there.
But thank you, NonTaken, what you say makes sense and would have been the way to go if I didn't have that filter class available.
