Slider Progress: Slider Styling Option Pane

During the great rewrite, I’ve been trying to focus on one section at a time. The first section to come under attack was “everything pertaining to the styling of Slider that is not Arrow-related”. After much mucking-about I decided to combine the Border, Rounded Corner, Background Image, Gradient and Background Colour onto one Pane.

I don’t know why I didn’t do this before, it is obvious and really the only logical way to present these controls – enabling some may disable others, it was confusing and clumsy when they were on different tabs.

Now users will be able to see what is being enabled/disabled without swapping between different tabs.

Here is a screenshot of the option page as it is currently:

This is about the 10th layout redesign, I’m quite sure there will be no major changes from now on.

Still a long way to go, but progress *is* being made.
