Scrollable components are already in Nifty GUI. Maybe the scroll bar could be used separately to make a slider. We need sliders and spinners for our application, these components are in Swing. Of course, Nifty GUI is not a kind of OpenGL Swing libraries but these components are quite useful. A color chooser would be fine but it is not mandatory.

    Sliders are already scheduled for Nifty 1.3, you can see the feature request for details https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2852171&group_id=223898&atid=1059825

    I don't think that there is enough time left for Spinner-Controls right now (at least as a standard part of 1.3).

    Nifty GUI - at least in its current reincarnation - was never meant to be a complete widget toolkit. But it allows you to create your own control if there is the need for something that is not covered by the standard controls.

    But of course I've noticed that there is a high demand for more widgets. That's another point on the things to improve list for Nifty 2.0 :D
