(Request) Customizable Silder Bars

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jun 09, 2014 11:43 pm

Hi guys...scirra released slider bars on the last update...but i have a question?? why do they look so generic and ugly?? i want to ask to work on a Customizable Silder Bar where i can set the image of the bar and the slider and have the ability to animate the two, becuase i use 2 frames, when its selected and when is not...thats all i ask...

knowing that this community has some many talented people like @rexrainbow, @R0J0hound, @Pode, @septeven, @linkman2004 and much more... C2 has the official textbox plugin, without any custom options.. and seeing that someone did advanced textbox plugin that allows to set color of the box, color of the text and more... i wont be surprised of some of you will make something with the slider plugin... becuase right now...it looks lame :)

thanks a lot...i hope this becomes real... :)

Make your own.
Here's an example of how to do it.

I agree with you, not so much that they are ugly as i like the progressbar. But more as Sethmaster also indicated that they are not all that useful, mostly because theres a very small chance that it will fit your graphical style of the game.

Would be nice if the slider bar object required you to make two sprites that was link to it, and would make up the graphical part of the object. But not sure if that's easy.

Because plugin of HTML element like text box is not high priority of my todo list. Since they might not be used in the game.

I thought it might not be harder, it could be done by CSS I guess.
You might ask @Pode, or @septeven for this behavior. since they had made some html element plugins before.

Perhaps you could answer this: Does css work in preview?
