using JitterGUIUtils in Javascript

    Hi -
    I'm trying to figure out how to use the enticing JitterGUIUtils classes in a javascript.
    The one relevant example I can find ("jitter-gui-sliderexample") demonstrates their use in patcher objects, but not in a script.
    So how would one instantiate something like a JitterGUISlider in a javascript?
    First of all, I assume it's necessary to copy 'jitter_gui_slider.js' to the jsextensions folder, right?
    After I've done that, at least I can add this line to my script and compile without error:
    my_slider = new JitterGUISlider("holiday");
    But that's as far as I can get.
    If I try:
    for(var n in my_slider)
    post(n,"n");
    I get back 'maxobj' and that's it - whereas with any actual max or jitter object I would get a full list of attributes (as properties of the object).
    Of course if I add
    my_slider.color = [0.8,0.4,0,1];
    my_slider.position = [0,0,0];
    my_slider.scale = [0.3,1,1];
    I get those back as properties, but clearly they weren't there until I mentioned them.
    (I'm assuming based on the example that color, position and scale are attributes of a JitterGUISlider - ?)
