English term or phrase: drag to seek
Any idea as how to translate the above phrase? I am afraid there is not much context provided. It's a translation of strings for a website.
Thanks again! :)

Hur skulle man säga motsvarande på svenska? "dra för att söka/sökning" ger få google-träffar.
"Tryck på positionsindikatorn och för den för att söka..." ??
