The following animation:

 Plot[i*Sin[x], {x, 0, 2*Pi}, PlotRange -> 10], {i, 1, 10, 
  ControlType -> Animator}]


enter image description here

How can I exchange Slider and Play Button Position, like that:

You can have two controls, an Animator and a Slider (or a Manipulator), both tied to the same variable:

Manipulate[Plot[i*Sin[x], {x, 0, 2*Pi}, PlotRange -> 10], 
 Row[{Control[{i, 1, 10, Animator,  AppearanceElements -> {"StepLeftButton", 
   "StepRightButton", "PlayPauseButton", "FasterSlowerButtons", "DirectionButton"}}],
  Control[{{i, 1, ""}, 1, 10, Slider}]}]]

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks a lot for this answer ! This is great ! I just think that you forgot to put "ControlType ->" before Animator. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @james, my pleasure. You can have ControlType -> Animator or just Animator; both work. $\endgroup$
