Suspension lock-out

Hi guys,

Just got a new MTB. Both bikes had/have lockout on the front fork, but they're different - the old one was a mechanical lock-out and I had to 'un-weight' the bike to turn it on or off, and it was either 'on' or 'off'. The new bike isn't the same, I can operate the lock-out whilst on the bike and turning it feels smooth - from what I've read I understand this works by changing the size of a hole inside through which liquids moves (or doesn't when its closed). If that's the case - does this kind of lock-out have an analogue adjustment, ie. can I close it a bit, to make the suspension harder and ease it off to make it softer - or is it still either 'on' or 'off'?

I hope that question makes sense?
