Slider Value in Virtual devices

Question

I have made a slider in a virtual device for my lightwave lights. They have a normal range of 0-32, so in my virtual device slider i have used:

 

local LWRF_DimLevel = math.floor((_sliderValue_ / 100) * 32)

 

However when I put the slider between the values of 0-4 (so very dim) the actual light level goes to 100% brightness.

 

I assume my math.floor must need changing?

 

Or is there any code I can use to not allow the slider to go below say 5?

 

Or if slider <5 then 'press button' off for example?

    Found this ..

     

    not sure what it means but seems to work to limit range if it helps anyone else:

     

    1. function map_range( a1, a2, b1, b2, s )
    2. return b1 + (s-a1)*(b2-b1)/(a2-a1)
    3. end
    4.  
    5.  
    6. local LWRF_DimLevel = map_range(0, 100, 5, 32, _sliderValue_ )
