In the package relax you find the function slider(). The help page of slider shows a nice application: R.veil.in.the.wind() Here are the definitions of slider and R.veil.in.the.wind:

# definition of slider

    sl.defaults, but.functions, but.names, no, set.no.value,     obj.name, obj.value, reset.function, title) {

    if (!missing(no))

        return(as.numeric(tclvalue(get(paste("slider", no, sep = ""),
            env = slider.env))))
    if (!missing(set.no.value)) {
        try(eval(parse(text = paste("tclvalue(slider", set.no.value[1],
