    namespace Slider
    {
        public static class MauiProgram
        {
            public static MauiApp CreateMauiApp()
            {
                var builder = MauiApp.CreateBuilder();
                builder
                .UseMauiApp<App>()
                .ConfigureSyncfusionCore()
                .ConfigureFonts(fonts =>
                {
                    fonts.AddFont("OpenSans-Regular.ttf", "OpenSansRegular");
                });
    
                return builder.Build();
            }
        }
    }

    Initialize range slider

    Import the SfRangeSlider namespace and initialize the range slider as shown below.

    <ContentPage
        . . .
        xmlns:sliders="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Maui.Sliders;assembly=Syncfusion.Maui.Sliders">
        <sliders:SfRangeSlider />
    </ContentPage>
    using Syncfusion.Maui.Sliders;
    
    namespace RangeSlider
    {
        public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
        {
            public MainPage()
            {
                InitializeComponent();
                SfRangeSlider rangeSlider = new SfRangeSlider();
                this.content = rangeSlider;
            }
        }
    }

                           ShowLabels="True" />
    SfRangeSlider rangeSlider = new SfRangeSlider();
    rangeSlider.Minimum = 0;
    rangeSlider.Maximum = 10;
    rangeSlider.RangeStart = 2;
    rangeSlider.RangeEnd = 8;
    rangeSlider.ShowLabels = true;
    rangeSlider.Interval = 2;

                           ShowTicks="True" />
    SfRangeSlider rangeSlider = new SfRangeSlider();
    rangeSlider.Minimum = 20;
    rangeSlider.Maximum = 100;
    rangeSlider.RangeStart = 40;
    rangeSlider.RangeEnd = 80;
