This is the first version of a new class I have been working on to create sliders in flash. I am really enjoying this new class, (mostly out of laziness), it is really making things quick. In order to create a new slider you feed the class function 4 values, (max value, min value, length, Display Object), and it builds it for you.
The Display Object is what you will use as a button on the slider, so it is quite adaptable. Alternatively you can talk to it and receive the value of the slider along the min and max range you have set when creating it.
