Wow that's the greatest idea, good job @Juan_Antonio :star_struck: :+1:

2.- Circular Slider with JavaScript.

Code adapted to App Inventor from...

https://www.cssscript.com/demo/circular-range-slider-svg/

 updateLegendUI(currentAngle) {
        const targetSlider = this.activeSlider.getAttribute('data-slider');
        const targetLegend = document.querySelector(`li[data-slider="${targetSlider}"] .sliderValue`);
        const currentSlider = this.sliders[targetSlider];
        const currentSliderRange = currentSlider.max - currentSlider.min;
        let currentValue = currentAngle / this.tau * currentSliderRange;
        const numOfSteps =  Math.round(currentValue / currentSlider.step);
        currentValue = currentSlider.min + numOfSteps * currentSlider.step;
     //   targetLegend.innerText = currentValue;
		 window.AppInventor.setWebViewString("" +  currentValue + currentSlider.color) ;
    }

Can't get it to work on Android 10 in companion. Even tried putting all the js and css inside the html file. Just a blank web page. Works OK in my PC browser.

Ah, working on real device Android 11 using companion, and works with localhost link.

Hi
Is it possible to send a value to the slider?
eg: I have a button which when I click will send a value eg: 78 to the slider
which will move it to show 78.

May I know how do I go about this, maybe some sample for changes to the javascript or blocks?

Thank you.

3.- Input value.
