A slider form cell displays a continuous range of values along a track.
With defined minimum & maximum values, a user can use their finger to slide the handle along the slider’s track in order to select a value between the set minimum and maximum values. A slider form cell is typically found in create and filter modals.
A slider form cell is best used when selecting a precise value that does not matter. If the exact value does matter, it is recommended to use a picker control.
