Using Mouse Wheel to Control Slider

You may have noticed that Google Maps will zoom in and out when you use your mouse wheel (or trackpad scrolling). If you want to do the same thing using the JavaScript Slider here is an example to get you started.

The example uses a slightly modified version of Adomas Paltanavicius’ mouse wheel event code. Firefox 1.5 seems to work fine but not Safari 1.3. Please let me know how it handles in other browsers.

Update: I’ve created a more extensive set of Slider demos which includes the mouse wheel demo. (Nov. 12, 2006)
