Exclamation  how to come out of a slider control?
Post: #1
I have some music play controls on a window lying horizontally , these contain
previous button, play/pause button, stop button , next button , volume slider and seek slider.

To control them through keys I have written :
<onleft> id_of_previous_control</onleft>
<onright> id_of_next_control</onright>
but when I reach to the volume slider , pressing right & left arrow key increases and decreases volume , it is doing good thing but now I am stuck with in volume slider I can not move to other control , also I can't write :
<onup> and <ondown> in slider control to switch to another control because all neighbor controls are placed horizontally not vertically so it will not make sense.

You may try using a button that would pop-up vertical slider. EDIT: I suppose one can choose between vertical and horizontal one. Not sure, though.

My skins:

Amber
Quartz

At the beginning it doesn't make sense, but once the user begin to use XBMC, they quickly know that if left/right doesn't work,, up and down will. I agree that it doesn't "flow" well visually, but it works and users doesn't mind. imho!
