    cy: 50
    radius: 40
    start_angle: -90
    end_angle: -180

  classes:
    track:                    # Track selector
      <...>
    active:                   # Active track selector
      <...>
    thumb:                    # Thumb selector
      <...>
    label:                    # Label selector
      <...>
    uom:                      # Unit of label selector
      <...>
  styles:
    track:                    # Track selector
      <...>
    active:                   # Active track selector
      <...>
    thumb:                    # Thumb selector
      <...>
    label:                    # Label selector
      <...>
    uom:                      # Unit of label selector
      <...>

The capture area is normally hidden, but can be styled by the user, just as the other parts:

  styles:
    capture:
      <...>

Look at the 3 examples below for more extensive styling.

Haptics

The circular slider supports its own haptic feedback in the user_actions part.

Action Haptic Description
Click slider in config Feedback that slider is clicked
Drag slider in config Feedback for every update to HA of the slider value

Animations

The circular slider tool has support for the following forms of animations:

Method Support Description
colorstops List of state values to set the color
colorlists Using a colorlist definition
animations Operator state based animations with class/style styling

Examples 1.1 to 1.3

Some examples with different settings for track and thumb.

The examples show the capture area too around the thumb: that one is normally hidden, but can be styled by the user!

Examples 1.4 to 1.6

Some more examples with different settings for track and thumb.

Example 1.4 shows formatting the capture area. 1.5 has capture hidden!

If you use a 360 degree circular slider, the tool blocks max/min and min/max transitions!

You can drag the thumb to the maximum or minimum value without having to stop exactly at the right point.
