[META] Slider
« on: June 10, 2015, 04:28:47 pm »

Hi there! I made a thing, but if you're not a plugin maker it's not for you. Sorry.
Does anyone here still make plugins?

...No? Dang.

Well let me show you this anyway

That's right, a slider! It's a bar with a cursor on it that you can drag, and it changes the value of the variable bound to the bar.

And it's a plugin that you can also include in your own plugins! The version 2.0.1 of minimap [not available yet] uses this, so what are you waiting for?

How to use

Well if you're not a plugin maker it's not for you. Sorry.
But if you are, it's pretty simple:
  • Download the attached file
  • Uncompress it in your Plugins folder. It should automatically create the subfolders: \Plugins\Resources\YB\slider, and put the 3 included files inside: Slider.gml, slider.png and cursor.png
  • In your own plugin, call execute_file(working_directory + "\Plugins\Resources\YB\slider\Slider.gml");
  • You can now create an instance: instance_create(0,0,yb_slider.Slider);

  • Support for other pictures: just change slider.png or cursor.png and you got a brand new look. You could even just remove the pictures, and the plugin would draw plain rectangles instead!
  • Opacity: the slider becomes clearer when you hover it! Basic user experience and ergonomics, whoo!
  • Independant from the Menu API: the sliders aren't automatically destroyed when you leave a menu! You have to manually place it, and create empty links in your menu to skip a row! That's totally a feature!

Code wise
  • Pass xoffset and yoffset directly as x and y when calling instance_create() !
  • Change the width, height, minValue and maxValue of the slider!
  • Bind a variable to the slider by setting slider.boundVar!
  • Execute a script when you set the value of the slider using slider.onChange! The script accepts one argument, the new value of the slider on release!

This actually looks really promising for setting adjustments, thanks for making it :z5:
