Direct Interactable UI Sliders and Dials?

InfiniteArray

Hello everyone!

I am planning on building an application where a user can use their hands to directly interact with a button, a slider and a dial (as opposed to using the joystick and raycast to manipulate the UI element).

Oculus has a template for virtual buttons that can be interacted with directly with the hand. But I am struggling to find if such a thing exists for sliders and knobs. All the examples for sliders that I've seen so far use the joystick rather than letting users pinch and move the selector. I haven't seen any examples for a knob yet.

Thus: Is there some example code for sliders and dials that allow for direct hand interactions?

I ended up solving my issue by following Valem's tutorial on Restricted Grabs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0rbFHWpKnA The slider in this case is a simple block that's restricted to move only a certain distance along one axis.
