	phiggins	in /dijit/form/Slider.js
	phiggins	var count = this.discreteValues; if(count > maxPixels){ count = maxPixels; } count--;
	phiggins	var pixelsPerValue = maxPixels / count; var wholeIncrements = Math.round(pixelValue / pixelsPerValue);
	phiggins	the pixels are off

don't fully know what that means :-)

Hmm, it's a pretty obscure case where a slider has more discrete values than pixels (in this case 301 vs 200), but I suppose you could make + work to just go one value even if it's the same pixel... don't know how much work that is though and whether or not it's worth it. Marking to consider for 1.0.

I'm the original reporter

If the correct fix is too complex (having subpixels values), there are 2 others possible fixes:

1)Using a multiple of the increment: that way, in a slider having 301 values and only 200 pixels, we would have '+' moving by 2 values. That would be good enough, and should not be too difficult to implement.
2) Even simpler, '+' could be plainly disabled if there is not enough space (or could simply increment the value of '0'), because if a UI designed chose a Slider it is because the "analog" feedback is more important than a precise value entry.

I think the current behavior is very wrong because:

1) Having a Slider that is integer based returning non integral values is a major breach on contract
2) The bug will appear depending on the browser width (so an app with no issue on a Desktop will break on a mobile phone, for instance).
