    Question How to bring the slider to the position user clicked the mouse.?

    Hi,

    I have a dialog control where I am using a slider control. I have handled the notification messages sent by the slider control. When user clicks on the slider, the slider moves in steps. I want to bring the slider directly to the position where user has clicked the mouse. The slider thumb should directly move to the clicked position instead of in steps.


    Anybody have any idea or it would be helpful if you can share sample code for the same.



    Regards,
    Mbatra

    From MSDN:
    The slider moves in increments that you specify when you create it. For example, if you specify that the slider should have a range of five, the slider can only occupy six positions: a position at the left side of the slider control and one position for each increment in the range. Typically, each of these positions is identified by a tick mark.
    So in your case "to bring the slider directly to the position where user has clicked the mouse" you seem to need to set the increments equal one pixel.
