Sailfish.silica.Slider documentation and/or implementation bug

I used a example code from https://sailfishos.org/sailfish-silica/qml-sailfishsilica-slider.html to create a slide and placed that into a Grid with 1 columns and it did not show properly.

A handle was shown at top of the screen.

In order to make the slider work, i had to give it a width property which is not mentioned in the documentation as a mandatory.

A) Either point out in the documentation that slider should always have width property defined or b) Fix the slider so that it gets default width from parent to fill all available space (if possible)

Slider doesn't intentionally have width bindings or horizontal anchors to allow more freedom for positioning it. Some components like text editors, buttons and sliders are more flexible building blocks that you can stack vertically and horizontally on the application page. Other components like pulley menus and page headers are always meant to be used in certain way and they don't provide the flexibility of changing their geometry. For such components the width has been automatically set.

You're right this should be better documented. Thanks. :)
