Hello, this is awesome!

However, I have a question:

I tried changing the slider value at runtime ( using .setValue() ), it changes the slider value but not the slider-helper-input at the side (textbox).

Can I have some guidance on this?



I found it in the js file (:


Thanks anyway!

Can we please add + and – buttons instead of up and down arrows if we can please show us how to add.


This is a great extension and is exactly what I am looking for, however it appears that this extension is slightly broken as the slider and text fields overlap when running under Sencha Touch 2.1.1

Here is your example updated to run under Sencha Touch 2.1.1 :

Any chance you could update the extension to work with the latest version of sencha touch?

@J-dog & @gabriel: I don’t have a complete solution yet but perhaps this will point you in the right direction.

Under Sencha Touch 2.2 I too found that the slider overlapped the input. When I stepped through everything I noticed that the applyComponent function was returning Ext.slider.Slider instead of (I guess) Ext.field.Slider.

I changed this:
return Ext.factory(config, Ext.slider.Slider);

to this:
return Ext.factory(config, Ext.field.Slider);

…and things were better.
