Reducing clicks 3: A faster way to switch between variants

Just as setting the values " On / Off ", " True / False " and " 0 / 1 " transforms the selection of variants from a dropdown to a switch button, we could continue with this idea and when setting the value of the variants to consecutive numbers " 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 " transforms the selection to a value slider selector.

It’s a nice idea, but technically problematic. If the potential number of variants are arbitrary then no single code could reliably handle updating the GUI for a growing slider. 5 variants looks manageable, but what about 20? At some point it becomes unusable and a different approach is needed.

A dropdown menu is good for handling larger amount of options, as it also allows you to name the options making it easier to find what you’re looking for. A stepper I think could be a middle ground between the two approaches. But if the goal is to reduce clicks then each approach has an optimal use case.

Yeah, I think as well with this option as much as we can offered is 5 - 10 options. That would be the maximum range that could be given with this slider model.

From there you would have to create or another property or as you say a steper system. would it be something like this?
