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

    "min": 0,           // MIN value

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();
