    I am using multiple sliders on a page. They are used to distribute a value to multiple factors. Here's an example:

    Lets say we have a value of 100. There are 4 sliders which are used to distribute that value between 4 factors. By default, the first factor is assigned 75%, the second factor is 25%, the other 2 are assigned 0%.

    As the first factor is decreased, the other 3 will increase evenly. i.e. the first factor is decreased 3%, factor 2 will increase to 26% and the other 2 will increase to 1% each.

    The final requirement is that each factor can be locked to the value currently assigned to it. Lets say in the previous example, factors 3 and 4 were locked at 0%. The result would be factor 1 would be at 72% and factor 2 would be 28%.

    I've been playing with some javascript to implement this functionality, but my javascript skills are newbie at best...=)

    The immediate problem I'm having is issues with recursion. I am trapping the onvaluechanged event so I can update the other sliders to their new values. I thought I could use a global variable that indicates the value is changing as the result of another slider moving, but it's not enough (apparently).

    As I move one slider, all the sliders (including the one I'm moving) take on a life their own. While it's cool to look at, it's not really what I'm after...=)

    Instead of redoing all the js code to address this problem, I thought I would post here to see if there are better ways of implementing this.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
