Class Methods

 def update


Changes some of the settings for the Slider Element. Must call Window.Read or Window.Finalize prior

Changes will not be visible in your window until you call window.read or window.refresh.

If you change visibility, your element may MOVE. If you want it to remain stationary, use the "layout helper" function "pin" to ensure your element is "pinned" to that location in your layout so that it returns there when made visible.
