Double click to edit slider label


On labels, you can use setEditable() to select whether editing happens on single click or double click.

We use double-click to edit all our labels. However, we have not found way to set this behaviour on Slider labels. Is this possible? If not, I would like to request this feature. Being able to obtain the label from the slider component would perhaps be enough, so that the property can be set from outside?



The following works for me:

class SliderDblClickLookAndFeel : public LookAndFeel_V3 {
    Label* createSliderTextBox (Slider& s) override
        Label* l = LookAndFeel_V3::createSliderTextBox (s);
        l->setEditable (false, true, false);
        return l;

and then in the constructor of your editor:

slider->setLookAndFeel(sliderDblLookAndFeel = new SliderDblClickLookAndFeel());


Thanks Fabian! This does indeed resolve our problem.
