comment Slider alternative
The fear of sliders is difficult to over come with this client. They had horrendous versions that nobody could use, then someone redesigned them and managed to make them worse, affecting conversion. I love your enhanced spinbox and initial feedback from them is positive so many MANY thanks!

On first thoughts I like this idea but my concern is that I have no way of categorising the values (whereas a calendar is usually categorised into months so you can filter down to maximum of 31 values).

Apologies for the original ambiguity, please see comment above.

It's primarily for desktop but will be designed responsively, so I do need to consider how it will render on mobile and whether we'd need to revert to a different control type (designed for desktop first because of the context of use).

comment Allowing user to input a constrained value
@inkmarble The number is constrained between a minimum and maximum. But the range might include 1000's of values. For example minimum = 3.5, maximum = 100.

comment Allowing user to input a constrained value
Thanks for your response. A bit more info: We have a product that is rebranded for many clients, and at present it includes a slider option. Every client has so far requested that the slider be removed ase end users find it difficult. The slider design may be to blame but I also think it's inherently difficult because of the large number of values. We have a text entry alternative but I can't see the point in the slider if users almost always have to use the text input.

Yes, I think that might be what I need. The incremental adjustments aren't ideal, as although you'll need to be able to move up/down by an increment of 1 in theory, it's much more likely that you'll adjust by 10 or more places at a time. Looking at patterns for alternatives now, thanks for pointing me in right direction.

answered Could you point out to touch-screen interface patterns (inclusive of iOS/android/blackberry)?

comment App interface for changing relational percentages
Wow, like it. Thanks so much for all your effort. My only additional comment (something I didn't say earlier) is that the user must choose a specific new 'pot' each time they add it. So it's not a case of just adding pot D. They must choose whether to add pot D, E or F.

You've inspired me. I think I've been looking at this the wrong way round. I actually need to 'take' from existing pots in order to 'give' to new ones. Design hat back on... Thanks :)

A bar chart is better than my proposal I think... it shows the comparison between different pots. My only worry would be whether users would intuitively understand that it was interactive, rather than a static image.

Also, you could just as easily consider it as % instead of £.
