I am designing a data web page (where most people viewing that page is looking up the data) for a game fansite and one part of it looks like this
The table show stats for a character at different levels. The max and min level rows are always shown. The level for 2nd and 4th rows can be selected by the two-handle slider on the left or directly typing into the textbox.
I am wondering if the UI can be improved, mostly regarding the slider. Due to space restrictions, most sliders would have a 2-pixel sensitivity: sliding 2 pixels in/decrease the level by 1.
For users look for data for a specific level (e.g. the level they are on), the slider is almost useless. For users who is comparing between levels or looking for the minimum level needed for a stat to be greater than some value, the slider saves them from entering values repeatedly. However, its usefulness is slightly hindered by its high sensitivity.
This part of the UI just begun internal testing and I will be getting feedback from testers, but I want to ask if there are other solutions to this.
