Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me why this code doesn't work. I'm trying to make a list of sliders, each of which controls a different variable x_i (where i is an indice in a 1D table). I thought the code below would work, but it turns out it only half works. It makes a list of sliders, but for some reason that I can't discern, all of those sliders are linked (they all move together). I can't figure out why this is. (Maybe it has to do with the subtle issues that arise from Dynamic working in the front-end? ) In[0]: Set[#, 0] & /@ Table[Subscript[x, j], {j, 0, 10}]; Table[Slider[Dynamic[Subscript[x, j]]], {j, 1, 10}];
