Examples

The following example shows how to set the IsMoveToPointEnabled property.

Slider hslider = new Slider();
hslider.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal;
hslider.Width = 100;
hslider.Minimum = 1;
hslider.Maximum = 10;
hslider.IsDirectionReversed = true;
hslider.IsMoveToPointEnabled = true;
hslider.AutoToolTipPrecision = 2;
hslider.AutoToolTipPlacement =
  AutoToolTipPlacement.BottomRight;
hslider.TickPlacement = TickPlacement.BottomRight;

// Manually add ticks to the slider.
DoubleCollection tickMarks = new DoubleCollection();
tickMarks.Add(0.5);
tickMarks.Add(1.5);
tickMarks.Add(2.5);
tickMarks.Add(3.5);
tickMarks.Add(4.5);
tickMarks.Add(5.5);
tickMarks.Add(6.5);
tickMarks.Add(7.5);
tickMarks.Add(8.5);
tickMarks.Add(9.5);
hslider.Ticks = tickMarks;

// Create a selection range.
hslider.IsSelectionRangeEnabled = true;
hslider.SelectionStart = 2.5;
hslider.SelectionEnd = 7.5;
cv2.Children.Add(hslider);
Dim hslider As New Slider()
hslider.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal
hslider.Width = 100
hslider.Minimum = 1
hslider.Maximum = 10
hslider.IsDirectionReversed = True
hslider.IsMoveToPointEnabled = True
hslider.AutoToolTipPrecision = 2
hslider.AutoToolTipPlacement = AutoToolTipPlacement.BottomRight
hslider.TickPlacement = TickPlacement.BottomRight
Dim tickMarks As New DoubleCollection()
tickMarks.Add(0.5)
tickMarks.Add(1.5)
tickMarks.Add(2.5)
tickMarks.Add(3.5)
tickMarks.Add(4.5)
tickMarks.Add(5.5)
tickMarks.Add(6.5)
tickMarks.Add(7.5)
tickMarks.Add(8.5)
tickMarks.Add(9.5)
hslider.Ticks = tickMarks
hslider.IsSelectionRangeEnabled = True
hslider.SelectionStart = 2.5
hslider.SelectionEnd = 7.5
cv2.Children.Add(hslider)
<Slider Width="100" 
        Orientation="Horizontal"  
        Minimum="1" Maximum="10" 
        IsDirectionReversed="True"
        IsMoveToPointEnabled="True"
        AutoToolTipPrecision="2" AutoToolTipPlacement="BottomRight"
        TickPlacement="BottomRight"
        Ticks="0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, 4.5, 5.5, 6.5, 7.5, 8.5, 9.5" 
        IsSelectionRangeEnabled="true"
        SelectionStart="2.5" SelectionEnd="7.5" Name="mySlider"/>

Remarks

When this property is set to false and a mouse click occurs along the Slider away from the Thumb, the Thumb moves in the direction of the mouse click. Instead of moving immediately to the mouse click location, the Thumb moves a distance that is defined by the SmallChange property for each mouse click.

The effect of multiple mouse clicks can be emulated by pressing and holding the left mouse button until the Thumb is repositioned to the desired location.
