Number clipping in Integer and float sliders



Two things.


First I'd like to report a graphical bug (i know it's the wrong place, but my second question is linked to this). When using integer and float sliders you can't see the whole represented value. See below the "draft analysis" UI won't display "15.0 deg" fully... whereas the Opacity slider will display "100" (integerSliderListCommandInput most likely) nice and clearly. 


It's frustrating to have to put the cursor in there and arrow back and forth to check the value. Especially when 15 degrees is the max value.. they could have increased the width of that box to fit "15 deg".

Secondly and more suitably to this forum. I wanted to make an integer slider and, for example, have a high value like 10,000. I looked everywhere, but there doesn't seem to be a way to control the width of that box with spin control. Is there any way we can get access to that as it will help with usability of our scripts.

There isn't any control over the width of the box.  Fusion automatically determines the width, but as you've seen, doesn't do a very good job.  I agree that this is a real annoyance and will file a bug for this problem.

Hi @ekinsb , @mjobson32CFL 


Any news about this issue?


It actually makes FloatSliderCommandInputs useless. For example the following image shows a parameter with value = 50 (min value = 0, max value = 100). Unacceptable user experience!





Do you have any suggestion for creating a good UX when we want to get a float parameter with min and max values? My current workaround is shown in the image below but it is not easy to use for users.
