Slider

Intro

Sliders display a continuous range of values along a track. The minimum and maximum values are established and the user may use the thumb to select a single value between the minimum and maximum values. They are typically found in Create and Filter modals.

Usage

Do
  • Use the slider control when selecting the precise value does not matter. If the exact value matters, use the Picker control.
  • Determine the default minimum and maximum values of the slider based on context and use within the app.
Don't
  • Avoid using long text for minimum and maximum values as they can shorten the track.
