setPopupDisplayEnabled() question


#1

This is a nice feature, but without a text box users have to actually click on a slider before they can see its value. In most cases it means they will actually change the current value in the process. Is it possible to have it display on a mousEnter, without having to hack a lot of Slider code?


#2

It could be done, but the Slider class is already pretty bloated with functionality and I'm not too keen to add more small options like that. It could probably done with a subclass?


#3

I use a toolip to show the value on mouse over.


#4

In the end I just used a BubbleMessage component and few mouse listener methods. Working wonderfully well. No need for any hacking of Sliders.
