Slider data type

Does the slider support float data types? Need to get it to .5 increments.

No, it doesn’t right now. You can always multiply by a factor of 10.

Thanks Travis. Is it in the near future that the slider will accept other data types?

I added a ticket but don’t know when the developers will add it to Ignition. If I have any updates I will post it here.

I’ve got to have this slider work way down to the ten thousandths.
You just can’t be controlling chemical doing at water treatment plants in integers.
I guess I could use µGPM but you know how end users hate having their units converted on them.

While I totally agree that we should have the slider support floating point values, this is a good opportunity to show off the power of our template system. In a few minutes I created my own floating point slider template, which you could use in your own projects!
