  • The slider item now respects the value of its CssClass property.
  • Reworked the Client API of the slider so that the developer does not need to call repaint after using a setter of the slider.
  • The repaint method now only recalculates the size of the slider elements and does not dispose the current HTML and recreate it from the ground up.

Because if this, in case the user clicked on the track and the two dragHandles had to switch during the animation (this can happen in the LargeStep > 0), the slider threw a js error.
