Use Slider Controls to jump to certain parts of the composition

Hey!
I'm a noob in expression controls. But, I'm trying to make a mogrt file. And I was wondering if there's an expression to let me use a slider control to skip to certain parts of my composition.

Like. If the slider's value is 1, the composition would be at 1 second.

Yes and No,
an expression only changes the value a keyframe-able property it is applied to.

Meaning: you can enable time-remapping of a precomp and simply hook up the time-remap property to your slider. Slider = 1 -> Comp is at 1.

However, you cannot move the Current Time Indicator with a slider.

Does that answer it ?
