Include jQuery and rangeslider.min.js to the project. Configuration is simple – over attributes.

Sample HTML:

  min="10"                    // default 0
  max="1000"                  // default 100
  step="10"                   // default 1
  value="300"                 // default min + (max-min)/2
  data-orientation="vertical" // default horizontal

Sample JS:

// Initialize a new plugin instance for all
// e.g. $('input[type="range"]') elements.

// Destroy all plugin instances created from the
// e.g. $('input[type="range"]') elements.

// Update all rangeslider instances for all
// e.g. $('input[type="range"]') elements.
// Usefull if you changed some attributes e.g. `min` or `max` etc.
$('input[type="range"]').rangeslider('update', true);


The rangeslider.js API is compatible with the standard HTML input methods.



  // Feature detection the default is `true`.
