How do I get events from a Slider widget while the user is dragging the
"thumb" piece? Currently I only see an event when the mouse is released.
This is on Mac OSX. I know it can be done because the scrollbars on
scrolled composites do it. By the way, why can ScrollBar's not be
instantiated outside the SWT package?

Thanks,

Frank

Update:

The same code does result in continuous events on win32...
Is this a bug in the OSX implementation of Slider?

Does anybody know how to work around this issue?

Thanks,

Frank
