The Spinner class implements the Spinner control, a pair of up-down or left-right arrows for incrementing/decrementing a value.

The Spinner properties are:

style: 0=Vertical 1=Horizontal (Not needed under MacOS - the where property determines the orientation).

value: An integer giving the current value

range: A pair of integers giving the minimum and maximum values (default 0 100)

increment: The step by which the value property will change each time the user clicks one of the arrows

wrap: A boolean indicating if the value wraps round when the maximum/minimum is passed.

tooltip: Provides help text when the user moves the mouse pointer over the control and pauses.

The onChange callback is invoked when the user changes the value.
