Change value shown on the slider

I'm using a slider to set some limits for a variable selected from a drop-down list. One variable has values in the range of 1000-2000 while others are in the range of 10-100. I set the slider range to 10 - 100 and then use a function node to map it to the range I want.

It is confusing to the dashboard user when the slider shows the value on the top because the range is from 1000 - 2000 but the slider shows values from 20 - 100. Is there a way to change this?
ooo

You can change the slider options on fly using msg.ui_control
