Setting slider targets.

Hi all,

I am glad to see that you included the star repair in
etoys 3.0 and now 4.0. My heart feels glad that children
will be able to play with them.

So here is the next repair still needing doing:

Right now you can get a slider from supplies.
You can set its action.
You can set its maximum and minimum extent.
You can give it arguments.
The one thing you cannot do is set its target.

The bug has been found and fixed in 3.9 and 3.10.
A while back I made a changeset to fix target setting for 3.8 and etoys.'
It's on mantis.

0006521: Target setting doesn't work for buttons and sliders

The only way to find out if it still works is to check it out.
If you have problems with it let me know and I will help.

Targeting makes it possible to design a slider the way you like it.
Duplicate it. Then use the duplicate for a totally different object.
This is very handy for rapid development.


Happy New Year.

Yours in curiosity and service, --Jerome Peace
