    module SliderComponent {
        $(function () {
            var slider = new ej.Slider($("#minSlider"), {
                sliderType: ej.SliderType.Default,
                value: 50,
                width: "500"
            });
    
            $("#rangeSlider").ejSlider({
                sliderType: ej.SliderType.Range,
                values: [20,80],
                width: "500"

    MaxValue

    To set the maximum/ending value of the Slider, you can use the maxValue property. By default its value is 100. Data type of this property is “number”.

    The following steps explains you on how to configure minValue and maxValue property.

    In an HTML page, specify the <div> elements to render the Default Slider and Range Slider.

  • html
  • <div class="txt">Default Slider</div>
       <div id="defaultSlider"></div>
       <br />
       <br />
       <div class="txt">Range Slider</div>
       <div id="rangeSlider"></div>
  • javascript
  • // When initializing Slider widget, configure the minValue and maxValue properties as follows.
    /// <reference path="tsfiles/jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="tsfiles/ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    module SliderComponent {
        $(function () {
            var slider = new ej.Slider($("#defaultSlider"), {
                sliderType: ej.SliderType.Default,
                value: 60,
                width: "500",
                minValue: 40,
                maxValue:80
            });
            
        var slider = new ej.Slider($("#rangeSlider"), {
                sliderType: ej.SliderType.Range,
                values: [10,90],
                width: "500",
                minValue: 10,
                maxValue:90
            });
        });
     }

    Execute the above code example to render the following output.

    In the above example, for Default Slider the slider value starts from “40” (min value) and ends in “80” (max value), so the slider handle is placed at the center of the Slider while specifying the value as “60”.

    For Range Slider, the value starts from “10” (min value) and ends in “90” (max value). The range shadow occupies the entire Slider, since the range (values) is specified as “[10, 90]”.

    Buttons

    Slider includes the button support for increment or decrement the values of the slider.

    Enabling Buttons

    Use the showButtons property to enable the button support. By default this property is disabled. Data type of this property is “Boolean”.

    The following steps explains you on how to enable button support in Slider.

    In an HTML page, specify the <div> elements to render the Range Slider.

       <div id="rangeSlider"></div>
  • javascript
  • // In JavaScript, when initializing the Slider, specify the value for “showButtons” property as “true” 
    /// <reference path="tsfiles/jquery.d.ts" />
    /// <reference path="tsfiles/ej.web.all.d.ts" />
    
    module SliderComponent {
        $(function () {
            var slider = new ej.Slider($("#rangeSlider"), {
                sliderType: ej.SliderType.Range,
                values: [30,60],
                width: "500",
                showButtons:true
            });
        });
    }
