Slider component Explained Thunkable AppInventor Makeroid AppyBuilder

What is a Slider?
A Slider is a progress bar that adds a draggable thumb to the interface. We can touch the thumb and drag left or right to set the slider thumb position. As It will drag left or right it will trigger the PositionChanged event and reports the position of the Slider thumb to commanding programme. The reported position of the Slider thumb can be used to update another component interface such as the font size of a TextBox or the radius of a Ball.

A Slider is commonly used to set font size of text or size of the component.
