you have a 3-mile wide screen?

wild guess, 1372 represents 1 pixel or slider.maxValue/slider track width (something like that, anyway)

a very wide screen,
or you could use a smaller number, 8000, setting your own label to look like
majorTickSpacing of 100000, then multiply the slider's value x 100

I think you can still use the original range for the slider, but Michael is right about the tick spacing. Use larger intervals, like 10000 for minor and 100000 for major. Also, you'll probably have to change the preferred size.

I tried the following and after resizing a bit manually, it worked just fine:


SCJP 1.4 - SCJP 6 - SCWCD 5 - OCEEJBD 6 - OCEJPAD 6
