Dealing with Ticks

It is possible to place tick marks along the track in a uniform manner. The position of tick marks can be customized.

Tick Frequency

The Tick Frequency property is used to define the number of ticks along the track, based on Minimum and Maximum values.

<editors:SfRangeSlider x:Name="rangeSlider" Width="200"  Minimum="0"  Maximum="100" TickFrequency="20" Value="40" />
rangeSlider.TickFrequency = 20;
rangeSlider.TickFrequency = 20

Tick Frequency

NOTE

When the SnapsTo property is set to Ticks, the TickFrequency is used to specify the interval between snap points.

Step Frequency

When the SnapsTo property is set to StepValues, the StepFrequency property is used to specify the interval between snap points.

<editors:SfRangeSlider x:Name="rangeSlider" Width="200" VerticalAlignment="Center" Minimum="0"  Maximum="100" StepFrequency="20" Value="40"/>
rangeSlider.StepFrequency = 20;
rangeSlider.StepFrequency = 20

Snaps To

The SnapsTo property determines whether the RangeSlider snaps to steps or ticks. Available options for this property are

  1. StepValues
  2. Ticks

Default option is StepValues and StepFrequency property is used to specify the interval between snap points in this case. If the SnapsTo property is set to Ticks, the TickFrequency property is used to specify the interval between snap points.

Tick Placement

The TickPlacement property used to determine where to draw tick marks in relation to the track. Available options for this property are

  1. BottomRight
  2. Inline
  3. None
  4. Outside
  5. TopLeft

The default option is Inline.

BottomRight

Tick marks placed either below the track in horizontal orientation or right of the track in vertical orientation.

<editors:SfRangeSlider Width="200" Minimum="0"   Maximum="100"   x:Name="rangeSlider"                                                   

TickFrequency="20" TickPlacement="BottomRight" Value="40"   />
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.BottomRight;
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.BottomRight

TickPlacement BottomRight

NOTE

In Vertical Orientation, this option will place the ticks to right side.

TopLeft

Tick marks placed either above the track in horizontal orientation or left of the track in vertical orientation.

<editors:SfRangeSlider x:Name="rangeSlider" Width="200"  Minimum="0"   Maximum="100" TickFrequency="20" TickPlacement="TopLeft"  Value="40"   />
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.TopLeft;
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.TopLeft

TickPlacement TopLeft

NOTE

In Vertical Orientation, this option will place the ticks to left side.

Outside

Tick marks placed on both sides of the track either in horizontal or vertical orientation.

<editors:SfRangeSlider x:Name="rangeSlider" Width="200" Minimum="0" Maximum="100" TickFrequency="20"  TickPlacement="Outside" Value="40"/>
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.Outside;
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.Outside

TickPlacement Outside

Inline

Ticks are placed inside the track.

<editors:SfRangeSlider x:Name="rangeSlider" Width="200" Minimum="0" Maximum="100" TickFrequency="20" TickPlacement="Inline" Value="40" />
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.Inline;
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.Inline

TickPlacement Inline

None

Tick marks not appear.

<editors:SfRangeSlider x:Name="rangeSlider" Width="200" Minimum="0" Maximum="100" TickFrequency="20" TickPlacement="None" Value="40" />
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.None;
rangeSlider.TickPlacement = Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Input.TickPlacement.None

TickPlacement None

Customizing tick color

The range slider control provides the TickBarFill property to customize the color of ticks in tick bar.
