UISlider to control AVAudioPlayer

I'm trying to implement a little function in my app. I am currently playing sounds as AVAudioPlayers and that works fine. What I would like to add is to control the sound's position (currentTime) with an UISlider: is there a simple way to do it ?

I looked at an Apple project but it was quite messy....have you got samples or suggestions ?

Thanks to everyone in advance


To extend on paull's answer, you'd set the slider to be continuous with a maximum value of your audio player's duration, then add some object of yours (probably the view controller) as a target for the slider's UIControlEventValueChanged event; when you receive the action message, you'd then set the AVAudioPlayer's currentTime property to the slider's value. You might also want to use an NSTimer to update the slider's value as the audio player plays; +scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval:target:selector:userInfo:repeats: is the easiest way to do that.
