JSlider : Java Glossary

A Swing JComponent that lets the user drag a thumbtab horizontally or vertically to continuously change a numeric value. For example, a JSlider can be used to control magnification continuously. You can redraw as the slider moves. I used it on in one app to control the speed of an animation.

It does not have a built-in indicator of the value. It will label the slider with tick marks and calibrations. You have no control over the Font or Color of the calibrations. If you try too big a range on too short a slider, you get gibberish since the calibrations overlap. They work for both negative and positive values.
