Description

The sliders are unintuitive and rather difficult to operate, especially if they only provide two or three allowed options.
We need to explore solutions to at least the following two issues:
  • There is no indication of what the allowed choices are. If possible, there should be grooves or other marks, where the allowed choices are (e.g., one at the start of the slider, on at the end, one at the middle, if the user has three choices).
  • There is no feedback to the user while the mouse button is pressed, but the pointer is between two valid choices. Ideally, the slider would move with follow the mouse and snap to a valid choice. If the user hasn't move the slider far enough, then it will snap back to its original position.
