The slider is a control that enables users to adjust values in a specified numerical range. Only a horizontal slider is available.


  • Use the slider to change values with graphical support.
  • By default display a label, unless the slider is next to another control that already has a label.
  • Always use the slider with a progress bar.


  • Don’t use the slider if the accuracy of a selected value is important. In this case consider using a numerical text field.
