i am thinking a user in horizon would use a slider to select the ram size, number of cpus and disk size in the "launch instance" screen. if yes, how do i set it up to ultimately show up in horizon?

You should be able to add the custom flavor with the nova CLI, and if you need something more specific you can take a peek at this doc. Hope this helps

Admin users can use the nova flavor- commands to customize and manage flavors. To see the available flavor-related commands, run:

nova help | grep flavor-
   flavor-access-add   Add flavor access for the given tenant.
    flavor-access-list  Print access information about the given flavor.
                        Remove flavor access for the given tenant.
    flavor-create       Create a new flavor
    flavor-delete       Delete a specific flavor
    flavor-key          Set or unset extra_spec for a flavor.
    flavor-list         Print a list of available 'flavors' (sizes of
    flavor-show         Show details about the given flavor.

omar thanks - i have used that page and cli before. i am looking for something the end user can use. like a slider to dynamically set the resource parameters at launch time. something like this:

would you know if it was released yet?

It doesn't appear so, I was able to find another blueprint as well for the same type of functionality . It's a really good idea, and I hope it gets implemented. My only suggestion would be to create more flavors for now.
