jquery-asRange can accept an options object to alter the way it behaves. You can see the default options by call $.asRange.setDefaults(). The structure of an options object is as follows:

  namespace: 'asRange',
  skin: null,
  max: 100,
  min: 0,
  value: null,
  step: 10,
  limit: true,
  range: false,
  direction: 'h', // 'v' or 'h'
  keyboard: true,
  replaceFirst: false, // false, 'inherit', {'inherit': 'default'}
  tip: true,
  scale: true,
  format(value) {
    return value;
Property Default Description
namespace "range" Optional property, set a namspace for css class, for example, we have .range_active class for active effect, if namespace set to 'as-range', then it will be .as-range_active
skin null Compulsory property, set transition effect, it works after you load specified skin file
max 100 Optional property, set the maximum range value of the progress bar
min 0 Optional property, set the initial value of the progress bar
value [0,20] Optional property, set the pointer to the initial position
step 10 Optional property, set up the moving step at a time
pointer 2 Optional property, set the number of pointer
limit true Optional property, if true, limit the range of the pointer moving
orientation 'v' Optional property, set the direction for the progress bar ,'v' for vertical and 'h' for horizontal
tip true Optional property, if true, the component of tip will display and follow the pointer
scale Object Optional property, values means the value you want to add to scale; gap means how many parts you want to division between value; grid means how many small parts in the part
format function(value) {return value;} Optional property, a function of formatting output
onChange function(instance) {} Optional property, according to your need, it can be as a function of the extended interface
callback function() {} Optional property, if it's a function, will be called when mouseup


Methods are called on asRange instances through the asRange method itself. You can also save the instances to variable for further use.

// call directly
// or
var api = $().data('asRange');


Set the range if value is defined or get the value.

// set the val
$().asRange('val', '5');
// get the val
var value = $().asRange('val');


Set the range value.

$().asRange('set', '5');


Get the range value.

var value = $().asRange('get');


Enable the range functions.



Disable the range functions.



Destroy the range instance.



jquery-asRange provides custom events for the plugin’s unique actions.

$('.the-element').on('asRange::ready', function (e) {
  // on instance ready
Event Description
init Fires when the instance is setup for the first time.
ready Fires when the instance is ready for API use.
enable Fires immediately when the enable instance method has been called.
disable Fires immediately when the disable instance method has been called.
change Fires when the position of pointer is changed.
end Fires when mouse up.
destroy Fires when an instance is destroyed.

No conflict

If you have to use other plugin with the same namespace, just call the $.asRange.noConflict method to revert to it.

<script src="other-plugin.js"></script>
