rslider

Display or change a range of numbers

Description

rslider takes a list to set a range from the lowest to highest value. In the right inlet, the number is taken as one end of the range. The left inlet sets the other end. Drawing the range with the mouse always outputs the lowest value out the left outlet and the highest out the right.
Shift-clicking extends the range instead of replacing it. Command-clicking (Macintosh) or Control-double-clicking (Windows) and dragging shifts the current range values up or down. Option-clicking (Macintosh) or Alt-clicking (Windows) and dragging up or down expands or shrinks the currently selected range. Command-double-clicking (Macintosh) or Control-double-clicking (Windows) selects the entire range.

Arguments

None.
