17 Jun 20218 minutes to read

This section explains about how to show the dividers in the slider.

Show Dividers

The ShowDividers property is used to render the dividers on the track. The default value of the ShowDividers property is false. It is a shape, which is used to represent the major interval points of the track.

For example, if Minimum is 0, Maximum is 100, and Interval is 10, the slider will render the dividers at 0, 10, 20 and so on.

<slider:SfSlider Value="50"
                 Interval="10"
                 ShowDividers="True" />
SfSlider sfSlider = new SfSlider();
sfSlider.Value = 50;
sfSlider.Interval = 10;
sfSlider.ShowDividers = true;
this.Content = sfSlider;
