You would either need to use the Rotate Component extension, or draw your own Slider using a Canvas and Sprite.

You don't have to rotate a Button, you can define the shape as required and if it needs to have a text label, that can be done with an image.

Edit: Actually, the best solution looks to be Juan Antonio's extension, as suggested by Patryk.

Yeah, im very sorry


Do you need slider to be vertical or it to be rotated to some specific angle.

I think it can be your solution

Please be more precise. Thanks

Ok, then you can go for it.

It would be great, if you search fourm which is already full of solutions to try/experiment with them.

Since there are two things, 1. one is slider which is used to scroll screen left-right or to scroll down or up. 2. Slider button for yes or no answer.

What you are talking about?

You can provide some screen or even some hand drawn scratch of your requirements.

You can use the .rotate function to rotate the slider, but you'll still have to code it in such a way as if it's still horizontal.

Then use this
