AutoAction

AutoAction
is an option for objects such as Slider, Locator and Button that specifies whether they should automatically take action whenever the mouse pointer is over them, even if they are not clicked.
  • The default in all cases is AutoAction->False.
  • AutoAction->True causes controls to take action whenever the mouse is near them.
Make Slider respond to mouse movement without clicking:
