I am working on customizing a Slider using it's ControlTemplate. One component of the ControlTemplate is the Tickbar(s). According to the information I found, the ticks are always 1 pixel wide. This makes the tick marks very hard to see, so I would like to make them wider? Setting the Width property of the Tickbar does not work for this. Is there any kind of Template for the ticks (like there is for the Thumb)? I would also like to display the value of each tick above or below the tick. Is there any way to do this (preferably in XAML)? Thanks.
