Common numbers


The slider is a basic draggable element, often used for numbers that control something like the width of an element. They have a little input box on the right side, to allow for manual inputs. So it's not cramped, the slider only has a single-column variant.

Sliders can either return an integer or a float, and are able to be stepped.

    name = "You slide me right round baby right round",
    min = 0f, max = 100f        // min and max values for the slider
    // if you like, you can use step to set a step value for the slider,
    // giving it little steps that the slider snaps to.
    step = 10f
public static float slideyboi = 50f; // default value

Number Input

The number input is an adapted text field that only accepts valid numeric values. It similarly can be a float or integer. It can be displayed in either a dual or single-column mode.

It also has cute little arrows next to it which can be clicked to increase or decrease the number by the step value (default 1)

    name = "I am a number",    // name of the component
    min = 0, max = 37,        // min and max values (anything above/below is set to the max/min
    step = 5        // each time the arrow is clicked it will increase/decrease by this amount
public static int num = 20; // default value

When should you use a slider or number input

Essentially, if the feature should be "played with", use a slider. Things like volume, size, or time. Number inputs, on the other hand, are intended for more manual control. Basically, if the user doesn't know the actual number they need, use a slider. Otherwise, number input.
