Getting Started with RangeSlider

This section explains you the steps to configure a RangeSlider  control in a real-time scenario and also provides a walk-through on some of the customization features available in RangeSlider control.

Referencing Essential Studio Components in Your Solution

After installing Essential Studio for Xamarin, you can find all the required assemblies in the installation folders, typically:

{Syncfusion Installed location}\Essential Studio {version number}\lib

You have to add the following assembly reference to the iOS unified project

iOS-unified\Syncfusion.SfRangeSlider.iOS.dll

And and Configure the RangeSlider

  • Adding reference to RangeSlider.
using Syncfusion.SfRangeSlider.iOS;
  • Create an instance of SfRangeSlider
SfRangeSlider rangeSlider = new SfRangeSlider();
	this.AddSubview(rangeSlider);

Add Values and Scale

You can set the minimum value for the slider by using the setMinimum() and setMaximum() properties in the RangeSlider. It can be Numerical values.

rangeSlider.Minimum = 0; 
	rangeSlider.Maximum = 24; 
	rangeSlider.DirectionReversed = false; 
	rangeSlider.RangeEnd = 20; 
	rangeSlider.RangeStart = 4;
	rangeSlider.ShowRange = true; 
	rangeSlider.Orientation = SFOrientation.SFOrientationHorizontal;

NOTE

Likewise, RangeStart and RangeEnd can be set that denote the start range and end range values while dual thumb is used. The ShowRange property is used to switch between a single thumb and double thumb. The Orientation property sets the type of orientation.

Add Ticks and Labels for RangeSlider

The ticks can be set by setting the TickFrequency and TickPlacement. Likewise, value labels can be set by setting the ShowValueLabel property to true. The position of label can be varied by the LabelPlacement property.

rangeSlider.TickFrequency = 4; 
	rangeSlider.ShowValueLabel = true; 
	rangeSlider.ValuePlacement = SFValuePlacement.SFValuePlacementTopLeft; 
	rangeSlider.TickPlacement = SFTickPlacement.SFTickPlacementBottomRight;

NOTE

The TickFrequency determines the interval between the ticks.

Add Snapping Type for RangeSlider

The movement of the thumb can be varied in different ways. This is achieved by setting the SnapsTo property.

rangeSlider.SnapsTo = SFSnapsTo.SFSnapsToTicks; 
	rangeSlider.StepFrequency = 6;

Configure the properties for RangeSlider

rangeSlider.Minimum = 0;
	rangeSlider.Maximum = 24;
	rangeSlider.RangeStart = 4;
	rangeSlider.RangeEnd = 20;
	rangeSlider.TickFrequency = 4;
	rangeSlider.TickPlacement = SFTickPlacement.SFTickPlacementBottomRight;
	rangeSlider.SnapsTo = SFSnapsTo.SFSnapsToTicks;
