Suitable alternative to trackbar control
In our application, there are settings that have a high dynamic range (e.g. 0-10000 in steps of 0.1). I am in need of a UI to adjust these using touch control only and limited screen space, since this appltcation is running on an embedded device.
What we tried so far and found lacking:
- a standard slider (not sensitive enough)
- buttons like +0.1, +1, +10, +100 (require lots of clicks or lots of buttons and are deemed unsexy by marketing)
- a centered slider controlling the velocity of change, i.e. pulling the slider to the right makes the value increase (testers found this difficult to grasp)
Are there any tried and true ways to do this?
