# VerticalSlider

 VerticalSlider[y]represents a vertical slider at position y with range 0 to 1. VerticalSlider[Dynamic[y]] takes the position to be the dynamically updated current value of y, with the value of y being reset if the slider is moved. VerticalSliderrepresents a vertical slider with range to . VerticalSliderrepresents a vertical slider that jumps in steps dy. VerticalSliderrepresents a slider in which equally spaced intervals correspond to successive settings . VerticalSlideruses intervals of relative heights for the .
• VerticalSlider[...] displays in a notebook as a vertical slider that can be manipulated interactively.
• VerticalSlider[y] represents a slider running from value 0 at the bottom to value 1 at the top.
• VerticalSlider with represents a slider running from value at the top to value at the bottom. »
• If the value of the slider is outside the range given, it will be displayed at one of the ends.
• VerticalSlider displays at position y, even if this is not a multiple of dy.
• The following options can be given:
 Appearance Automatic the overall appearance of the slider AutoAction False whether to move the slider automatically when the mouse is over it BaselinePosition Automatic alignment relative to surrounding text BaseStyle {} base style specifications for the slider ContinuousAction True whether to update continuously when the slider is moved Enabled Automatic whether the slider is enabled, or grayed out ImageMargins 0 margins around the image of the displayed slider ImageSize Automatic the overall image size of the displayed slider
• The settings for BaseStyle are appended to the default style typically given by the style in the current stylesheet.
