Jquery MinMaxSlider

The minMaxSlider extends the functionality of the Jquery UI slider by allowing synchronisation between the slider and linked input fields in a form. This means that users can set values in form input fields which will change the slider. This is great because it makes the slider very intuitive for users if they are not familiar with sliders.

Default Implementation

You can implement the minMaxSlider on any block level element in your form with the following code.


This will define a basic minMaxSlider based on the default configuration options.

Configuration Options

You can change any of the configuration options on implementation to customise how your slider will work:

slider By default the slider is attached to the calling element. With this option you can set it to something else.
min_input This is the tag that identifies the minimum input box for the slider.
max_output This is the tag that identifies the maximum input box for the slider.
min_size This sets the minimum size of the slider, default = 0.
max_size This sets the maxium size of the slider, default = 500.
sync_inputs This sets whether the input values and slider values are synchronised at all times. For instance this may be useful when you allow the max input to have a higher value then might be displayed on the slider.


To use the minMaxSlider you must have Jquery 1.3.2 or later, Jquery UI core 1.7.2 and the UI slider. You can download these all here.
