mousefilter

Pass numbers only when the mouse button is up

Description

Use mousefilter when you want to change something with a slider or other user interface object only after releasing the mouse, instead of continuously. This could be useful when the slider's output initiates a time-consuming process which would otherwise destroy the "feel" of the user interface.
