I need help with something for my vertical / horizontal sliders.
Currently, I have set lookandfeel and other characteristics of my sliders, and the thumbpoint starts correctly where I want it to be.
For example, I have one horizontal slider that starts at the center, but the problem I have is that the background path fill is already filled on one half at default, but I would llike it to only filll up when I move the slider left or right from the center.
Hope this isnt confusing, thanks in advance!
You want to create a look and feel class and override the relevant draw slider method. Then assign an instance of that class to the slider as its look and feel.
Do you know specifically what part of affects or what code I should look into for what I need
This is how I did it, it’s for knobs, but it will serve as a reference
In the Lookandfeel drawRotarySlider function the arc starts at rotaryStartAngle and ends at the current angle, so I added in my override function that when it is symmetrical the arc is drawn from the mid angle between rotaryStarAngle and rotaryEndAngle
if (slider.isSymmetricSkew()) valueArc.addCentredArc(bounds.getCentreX(), bounds.getCentreY(), arcRadius, arcRadius, 0.0f, (rotaryStartAngle+rotaryEndAngle)/2, toAngle, true); else valueArc.addCentredArc(bounds.getCentreX(), bounds.getCentreY(), arcRadius, arcRadius, 0.0f, rotaryStartAngle, toAngle, true);
thanks I will give this a try and let you know how it worked!
In general, if you click through to the juce source code of the widget you are using, they will usually contain a struct of look and feel methods, so you can get an overview of what you can override there.
