Values below 0.001 in a faders settings are set to 0.00 in the moment. Having the full range of float would be great.

Also, an extra fader setting "step size" would be great to set the fade behaviour to more/less coarse.

OK - good call on the fader step size; this goes back to the original incarnation of the software, which was actually part of a consulting job I was working. On the target hardware the controls (knobs, sliders, etc...) used an 8-bit ADC for encoding values, thus the step size is 256. I can fairly easily allow you to change this to alter the step size for higher resolution, however Windows sliders are ultimately integer based. Additionally, there is the issue of pixel truncation as you move the slider on the GUI.

Good suggestion - thanks.

One other thing - that pixel truncation is one of the reasons I included the edit boxes above each slider. In Windows, when you move a slider it's based on pixel changes so that granularity is added on top of the integer based slider controls. You can type a value into the edit box and hit to enter the data. In this way, you can exactly set the control value. If you do this with two values very close to each other on a control with a wide range of values, you will see that slider doesn't actually move - it's inside that pixel quantization level.

I have to deal with values inbetween 0.001 and 0.005. If I set a faders limits according to this specification, 0.001 becomes 0.00 the next time I open the faders propperties.

Also: Setting a faders minMax interval to 0.00 and 0.01 this seems to work. When loading the dll and type 0.001 in the edit box of the fader, the edit box still states 0.00 but the fader does actually moves. So I assume the edit box is simply fixed to 3 digit display.

Thank you for answering and for your affort.

Ahh OK yeah you are right - there is truncation going on in the data entry which I can easily fix/change. And, yes the Edit boxes are fixed to 3 sig digits.

You might want to consider using value from say 1 to 5 and then divide by 1000 (or 10 to 50...) for now.

Thanks. The final prototype is meant to be an AU plugin and the faders are actually working as they are supposed to exporting the project to AU, using the cocoa view.

OK yes this was an issue with sig digits in the slider setup and has been changed in the current Beta version. Thanks for pointing this out.
