Is it possible to have interact arguments depend on one another? For example, having the maximum of one slider depend on the former? I tried this:

def metacontrol(a=slider(5,10)):
    def control(b=slider(0, a)):

But it doesn't work; updating the first slider deletes the second slider. It is possible with two cells, but this requires executing the cell which defeats the purpose of interact.

Thank you.

This is already Ticket 3836 on Trac, I think. No, it's not yet possible. The interacts will have a lot changed over the next two years with the new NSF grant, though, so this is certainly a possible change during that time.

Thank you. Once that gets implemented, interact will be much more powerful.
