display_value string ‘text’ Sets output mode for the slider value. Accepted values include none for no output, label for a printed value, text for an editable text box, or select for a select box of values. Any other or incorrect values will default to text.
resolution int/float 1 Sets the value’s decimal significance. Acceptable values are: 1, 0.1, 0.01, 0.001, 0.0001, 0.00001. Any improper value will default to 1.

NOTE:  When setting the resolution argument to a floating point value, it will also be necessary to set the step argument to a floating point for values after the decimal point to change value. Not doing so will result in the value to the left of the decimal changing value upon slide.
