Flex Better Sliders
I find that the default sliders have a few minor usability issues a) the thumb is too small and b) the hit area of the the thumb is too small. Perhaps I just need new glasses or a bigger screen?
You could skin a slider and change the thumb graphic but it's just as easy to fix with a little actionscript.
thumb.width = 50;
thumb.height = 14;
thumb.width=50; thumb.height=14; <=== do not work.
