Fancy Controls

Fancy controls do more than make your front-end look good. The right controls on the stage should add clarity for your end user, and restrict the user's input to only valid data. For example, if you ask the user's age within a TextInput component, and they input the word "fifteen", when you were expecting the number, your program would either crash, or worse - you write code that might plan on the user inputting words when numbers were expected.

I'm finding it a bit easier to just draw components on the stage for now, so let's do that for now. We'll start with the "Numeric Stepper", and then the "Slider".
