Install with bower

  • bower install ionrangeslider

Install with npm

Initialisation

The slider overrides a native text input element.

<input type="text" id="example_id" name="example_name" value="" />

To initialise the slider, call ionRangeSlider on the element:

$("#example_id").ionRangeSlider();

Demo for juniors

Migrating from 1.x to 2.x

  • All params (except functions) are lowercase now: param_name, not paramName
  • Same param names was changed: hasGrid → grid, onLoad → onStart
  • Callbacks data object format was changed. Example: fromNumber → from
  • Slider now writes it's result to value attribute and also to data-from and data-to attributes

"single" string Choose slider type, could be single - for one handle, or double for two handles

Description of data passed to callbacks (onChange and etc.)

Result is object type and passed to callback as first argument:

Obj: {
    "input": object,    // jQuery-link to input 
    "slider": object,   // jQuery-link to sliders container 
    "min": 0,           // MIN value 
    "max": 1000,        // MAX values 
    "from": 100,        // FROM value (left or single handle) 
    "from_percent": 10, // FROM value in percents 
    "from_value": 0,    // FROM index in values array (if used) 
    "to": 900,          // TO value (right handle in double type) 
    "to_percent": 90,   // TO value in percents 
    "to_value": 0       // TO index in values array (if used) 
}

Creating slider (all params)

An example of a customised slider:

$("#example").ionRangeSlider({
    min: 0,
    max: 10000,
    from: 1000,
    to: 9000,
    type: 'double',
    prefix: "$",
    grid: true,
    grid_num: 10
});

You can also initialise slider with data-* attributes of input tag:

data-min="0"
data-max="10000"
data-from="1000"
data-to="9000"
data-type="double"
data-prefix="$"
data-grid="true"
data-grid-num="10"

Public methods

To use public methods, at first you must save slider instance to variable:

// Launch plugin 
$("#range").ionRangeSlider({
    type: "double",
    min: 0,
    max: 1000,
    from: 200,
    to: 500,
    grid: true
});
 
// Saving it's instance to var 
var slider = $("#range").data("ionRangeSlider");
 
// Fire public method 
slider.reset();

There are 3 public methods:

// UPDATE - updates slider to any new values 
slider.update({
    from: 300,
    to: 400
});
 
// RESET - reset slider to it's first values 
slider.reset();
 
// DESTROY - destroys slider and restores original input field 
slider.destroy();
