Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Yes, the Handle has an appearance setting for its Image. I don't remember if it can be set like a Button where you have Box, Border or Image type drawing, but you can set the Image, and maybe(?) the Tint on that image which is handy for greyscale.

I have changed the little grey rectangle to a round icon myself. I haven't tried changing the color yet.

Worst case scenario is you can build your own slider widget but I don't think you'll have to do that.

Hi, Thanks for the reply.

Could you point me in the direction of how to change the appearance as I've been through every style setting I can find of the combo box and nowhere have I spotted anything related to the slider of the combo boxs' drop down menu.

Oh shoot. I didn't notice how you said Combo Box. I thought we were just talking about a regular Slider. I'm afraid I don't know about Combo Boxes :\

You might be out of luck. It looks like someone forgot to expose it. I see that the combo box got pimped up. Even and Odd rows styling, aren't we spoiled?

Consider writing up a Feature Request. The Scroll Box has a fully customisable scroll bar so why not the Combo Bbox.

You might be able to use an Overlay and put the ComboBox inside it, and use your own image by on Tick updating its position to match the combobox slider's position, but I'm not sure how you'd find out the combobox slider's position if it's not exposed. Maybe the slider position is exposed but the styling isn't? If that's the case you can probably do this idea.

Thanks for the replies. I never did find a solution and while an image on top of an image may have worked there's no apparent reference to the slider at all (or at least not to BP). I've gone with Everynones' suggestion and put it in as a feature request.
