Jerome Peace commented on SQ-179:

I just want to freshen this issue in peoples minds. 

Especially as the next release target is August 2010. 

Right now a slider is not very useful.

But with the ability to easily pick targets you can do a lot.

Once you set a slider up to perform a particular function you can copy it, choose set target and have that function for any morph you wish.
A lot of possibilities emerge once this limitation is fixed.
Including the possibility to do poke and grapple gui's.

Please give it some thought.

Yours in curiosity and service, --Jerome Peace
P.S. Works for button's too.

>             Project: squeakland
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: etoys
>            Reporter: Jerome Peace
>             Fix For: someday
>         Attachments: targetOffsetFixes-wiz.6.cs
>   Original Estimate: 1 hour, 30 minutes
>  Remaining Estimate: 1 hour, 30 minutes
> You can set parameters for sliders and buttons and menus.
> However when it comes to setting targets the menus will usually not offer the option.
> This is a known and pervasive bug.

> 6521: Target setting doesn't work for buttons and sliders
> Has my run at a fix for the squeakland version of things.
> It also explains why the fix is very valuable. 
> Yoshiki has express concern at the extensiveness of the fixes.
> The way around that is to load the fixes as code and focus on just one piece at a time. I originally started just fixing sliders.
> The original change sets are also available, see the linked reports.
> Particularly look at the parent issue. That will accumulate pointers to other relevant reports.
> Fixes can be tried out in 3.9 and 3.10.2.
> Yours in curiosity and service, --Jerome Peace
> Estimate of time to finish. 
> I have made the fixes and proved them to work in 3.9 and 3.10.2
> The fixes in the report worked in Squeakland/Etoys when I made them.
> The work that remains is for somebody to load them in or load a portion of them in and see if they still work.
> This is not work I can offer to do. If somebody looks into it and has trouble I am willing to solve problems that will lead to getting the work into Olpc/etoys & squeakland versions.
> There is a very good chance that things will work right off the bat since I tried them out once before.
> So my estimate is someone needs to invest about 1 hr to check things out. And give feedback to this report.
