The Main Timeline

This consists of one frame in one layer, slider. The movie slider:control is dragged onto the stage and the following actions are included:

Comment: Make sure you set this to a valid number. It has to be between "min" and "max".
Set Variable: "/:delay" = 3

The purpose of this to define the variable that the slider will be adjusting. 'min' and 'max' which are located in the slider object are where you preset your minimum and maximum values for the slider. In this example I used "0" and "200". You want the slider to adjust '/:delay' between the values of 'min' and 'max'.

The slider that appears has a width of "200". This was done for the simplicity of understanding the math. You might also want to replace all occurences of "200" with another variable that you set before you get started... maybe call it 'length', which represents the length of the slider's drag limit. But to keep things simple for this demonstration I have left that up to you. Our slider starts sliding at "0" and has a limit of "200".
