Does anyone how to loop over values from a slider?
I am having a map with an overlay that is time dependent. I build up a dashboard with a rangeSlider where you can define the timestamp of the shown overlay. Now I want to have the option to loop over all the values in the range slider automatically.
Is there a feature for this purpose?
Otherwise I could take a Interval component that will change the latest value of the slider in the required interval. But this might be a bit hacky and I am sure there could be a more accurate way to handle this.
If interpret your question correctly, coupled by the fact that you are displaying weather info, I consider the
interval option ideal. You could have a play button that sets the interval and then increment the value of the slider as desired, thereby utilizing the callbacks already in place for when the user manually selects a value on the slider.
But to have this as a component would be very useful and would push this mapbox feature closer to solutions like leaflet.
Hi @meteoDan, you can control this directly from the plotly figure, using animations. Maybe this would be closer to what you need than a callback? See https://plot.ly/python/animations/, and also discussions here about changing the animation speed.
@Emmanuelle thanks for this nice hint. I guess this is doing everything I need. I will give it a try.
