Hello,

I would like to have equal spacing between my tick marks, even though the values of my slider data aren't equally spaced.

For example, if I have a SelectionStart and End of 1 and 100, with distinct tick values of 10, 13, 20, 58, and 99,  I get a slider with 5 tick marks in the respective distance between 1 and 100. Instead, I would like to the 5 tick marks to be all equidistant within the slider.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,

David

Hello david,

You can use a TickValueConverter in your TickTemplate in order to convert the values 20,40,60,80 (for example, equal distance between them) into 10, 13, 20, 58. But this way the returned value of the slider will be wrong.


All the best,

Thanks for the reply. I was considering that solution, but as you say, the values returned would be incorrect. 

Maybe I can keep a Dictionary around that has a tick mark=>real value pairing and I can grab the value I need when a tick mark is hit.

Thanks again.
