Customizing scale points in horizontal graphic slider.

I'm trying to add the ladder scale to my survey... which is on a 10 point scale.

I'm not opposed to using the horizontal bar slider as a substitute, but this only has the options of being a 3, 5 or 9 point scale.

Is there an easy Java Script to customize it to a 10 point scale?

Thank you so much for any help,

    Honestly, there's not an easy way to do this.

    1. The Graphic Slider question is hard-coded with 9 choices
    2. The Graphic Slider question is uses distinct images for each choice, so someone would need to create a 10th image.

    To achieve what you're describing, you would likely need extensive Javascript code that sits on top of another question type and essentially creates a replica of the graphic slider question from scratch, using 10 images that you would need to provide.

    You may consider using the traditional Slider, which can be configured.

    For example: Choices = 1, Max Value = 10, Gridlines = 10, & 'Snap to Grid' enabled.

    Thank you for your answer Farmaly! I did see the traditional slider... but since it is horizontal it doesn't look much like a ladder. But seriously, thank you for breaking this down for me! Before proceeding in a different direction, I wanted to make sure that I wasn't giving up too easily.
