Hi all,

A Spinner control is in the planning stages for JavaFX 8u40, and so when my 8u20 backlog has got down (or near to) zero recently, I've been prototyping one possible implementation of the Spinner. I'm now at the stage where I would appreciate more eyes on the API, so I have published the JavaDoc as a zip file attachment to the jira issue [1] - see spinner-javadoc.zip. Additionally, a relatively recent implementation is also available - download spinner.zip - but note that the visuals, whilst passable, are not in their final form in any way!

I'm aware that RT-5747 has become relatively long winded, but I would like to draw attention to my most recent comment [2], where I'm specifically pointing out areas that need more discussion. As always I have an opinion on these issues, but I'm keen to hear yours.

Also, for those of you that look at the API, you may be interested to note the stepping away from using a List for the backing model. I have some more early discussion on this decision at [3], but you probably want to read through the rest of the comments to fully understand! Suffice to say, nothing is set in stone - this is still in the prototype stage (although rather far along).

If people could post their thoughts to the Jira issue, rather than as a response to this email, that would be appreciated.
