jQuery Mobile - Slider Basics


  • To add a slider widget, use input with type = "range" attribute.

  • Specify the min and max values to set the range of the slider.

  • Initial value of the slider is set in value attribute.


Following example demonstrates the use of basic slider in jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Basic Slider</title>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

         <label for = "slider1">Slider:</label>
         <input type = "range" name = "slider1" id = "slider1" min = "0" max = "100" 
            value = "60">
