 Slider

Sliders are often the UI control of choice for letting users select a value or range from a fixed set of options. Sliders are good to use while:

  • setting mobile volumes such as media, alarm clock, and ringtones etc.
  • setting screen brightness
  • setting price range while purchasing things online

Properties

Property Description
Name The name is a unique identifier for slider widget.
Accessibility
Hint Any text or an HTML you enter for this property will be shown as a tooltip if the mouse hovers over this widget for 1.5 seconds.
Tab index The tab index attribute specifies the tab order of an element. You can use this property to change the default tabbing order for widget access using the tab key. The value can range from 0 to 32767. The default is 0 and -1 makes the element non-focusable.

NOTE: In Safari browsers, by default, Tab highlights only text fields. To enable Tab functionality, in Safari Browser from Preferences -> Advanced -> Accessibility set the option “Press Tab to highlight each item on a webpage”.

Shortcut key The shortcut key property specifies a shortcut key to activate/focus an element. (*See below for details)
Layout
Width The width of your widget can be specified in px or % (i.e 50px, 75%).
Height The height of your widget can be specified in px or % (i.e 50px, 75%).
Default Value
Value This is the default value to display value for an editor widget. Note that the display value is just what the user sees initially, and is not always the dataValue returned by the widget.
Minimum Value Enter minimum number. This property applies when the type is a number.
Maximum Value Enter maximum number. This property applies when the type is a number.
Step It is a composite widget with a label and a selector. The user can select from the range specified with the increment as defined by the step value.
Behavior
Read Only Selecting this checkbox property prevents the user from being able to change the data value of a widget.
Show Showing determines whether or not a component is visible. It is a bindable property.
Load on Demand
(visible only when show property is bound to a variable)
When this property is set and show property is bound, the initialization of the widget will be deferred till the widget becomes visible. This behavior improves the load time. Use this feature with caution, as it has a downside (as we will not be able to interact with the widget through script until the widget is initialized). When show property is not bound the widget will be initialized immediately.
Disabled If the disabled property is true (checked) the value of the editor cannot change. The widget becomes display-only.

Shortcut key: The shortcut key property specifies a shortcut key to click the button. The way of accessing the shortcut key is varying in different browsers:

Browser Shortcut key Trigger
Internet Explorer [Alt] + shortcut key
Chrome [Alt] + shortcut key (Windows/Linux)
[Control] [Alt] + shortcut key (MAC)
Firefox [Alt] [Shift] + shortcut key (Windows/Linux)
[Control] [Alt] + shortcut key (MAC)

Events
