Default Sliders and UI interfaces

Is there any way to make one slider in a UI interface that controls more than one attribute? For example, I want to have one slider change the conserve of four separate particles. Thanks!

As FB said, use SDK's. These are fantastic additions that make a lot of animation a lot easier. I had one for a hnad control a whil back with an Custom Attribute created for each finger and one for the fist. I even think Kurt has gone over this in one of the tutes he did on hand controls.
