Touch & Slide buttons for brightness & volume.

This is a little preset that shows how to add touch & slide buttons similar to the ones in the original control strip.
You can touch the button and immediately continue sliding to change volume/brightness. Takes less space than a real slider.

It's kind of a hack but works fine here.

I like the percentage next to the control buttons :smile:

Only i can't close the buttons.

By default they should automatically close if you release the touch. If you only tap them quickly, they should still show the x on the left side to close. Don't they?

Yes it does :+1:

p.s. is it possible that the standard play music button opens/works with VOX player?
Would be nice in combination with Sonos.

I really like what you've done here. :+1:

This is exactly what I was looking for––I'm thrilled! At first I didn't have enough 'runway' on the touch bar to reach min/max volume and brightness, but then I changed the preset actions so they didn't make increases/decreases by "small steps" and it worked a lot better for me.

OMG, thank you for the great work!!! I was looking for this for so long!

I really like the one you present. However, when I tried it on my MacBook Pro, I found that after I Iong taped the button, I could not immediately continue sliding to change volume/ brightness. instead, I had to leave my finger from the Touch Bar first, and then slide to change volume/ brightness. Do you have this problem? i appreciate for your help!

Is it possible to move the buttons further to the right?
I haven't found any options to change the position...
They are stuck alle the way on the left side for me so I can't really turn down the brightness/volume because the touch bar ends.

The brightness is showing as 0% in big sur. Any fix?

Looks great, thanks :slight_smile:

After updating to Big Sur I noticed that the immediate sliding is not working anymore though :slight_smile:

This is great, but I wonder if the sliding could be made more sensitive, so that it increases/decreases by greater increments?

I no longer have this either, but it happened to me with a BTT update before Big Sur.
