Time Slider Widget Customization - Single handle

The Time Slider widget appears with two handles or thumbs to define the time period shown on the map. However in many cases for historical data we want to show a "snapshot" i.e. the situation at a single point in time, not over a period, and certainly not over an adjustable period. For example, to show a single census year's data you don't want to bracket more than one decade. The two handles can be brought together, but this may be confusing for the user. I have looked into the Time Slider widget code but cannot find a straightforward way of customizing this. I have also looked through the list of custom Widgets and cannot find it. Anyone tried this or can point me in the right direction? thanks.
