Examples

Basic style customization

You are free to customize the range slider as much as you wish, using only CSS.

The width (for horizontal) or height (for vertical) of the slider, depends on the container in which it's placed and take 100%.

Play around with the background-color of .range-bar and .range-quantity, add a background-image to .range-handle, add some nice background-image to .range-min and .range-max, get use of the hideRange option and you may end up with something as fun as this:

Power Ranger Slider

The sky is the limit.

Hint: Use the klass option to add an additional class to the slider and apply different style to it

Minimum, maximum and start values

Changing your default min, max and start values is pretty easy. The start value has to be a number in your min-max interval, otherwise it takes the value of either min or max, depending on which is closer. Negative values are supported as well.

var init = new Powerange(elem, { min: 16, max: 256, start: 128 });
Decimal

Display decimal number with 2 characters after the decimal point.

var init = new Powerange(elem, { decimal: true });
Slider step

You can change the step with which the handle moves, using the step option.

var init = new Powerange(elem, { step: 10 });
Hide range values

You can hide the min and max values, by using the hideRange option.

var init = new Powerange(elem, { hideRange: true });

Hidden values

Disabled

Disable the range slider and change it's default disabledOpacity if needeed.

var init = new Powerange(elem, { disable: true, disabledOpacity: 0.75 });

You can still give it a value, by changing the start option.

Disabled

Horizontal and vertical slider

The default Powerange slider is horizontal. However, you can make it vertical, by setting vertical: true.

var init = new Powerange(elem, { vertical: true });

Vertical slider

Checking value

Check the current value of the range slider, by looking at the value of the text input element.

On click:

var clickInput = document.querySelector('.js-check-click')
  , clickButton = document.querySelector('.js-check-click-button');

clickButton.addEventListener('click', function() {
  alert(clickInput.value);
});

On change:

var changeInput = document.querySelector('.js-check-change');

changeInput.onchange = function() {
  alert(changeInput.value);
};
Callback

The callback function is invoked on slider initialization and on slider handle movement. It's very appropriate for displaying the current value in another element.

var elem = document.querySelector('.js-range');
var init = new Powerange(elem, { callback: displayValue });

function displayValue() {
  document.getElementById('display-box').innerHTML = elem.value;
}

Callback

Interacting with another elements

Just a simple example of how you can interact with an element, when changing the slider value.

var elem = document.querySelector('.js-range');
var init = new Powerange(elem, { callback: setOpacity, decimal: true, min: 0, max: 1 });

function setOpacity() {
  document.querySelector('.target').style.opacity = elem.value;
}

Development

If you've decided to go in development mode and tweak this module, there are few things you should do.

Make your own build files, by using Grunt command:

$ grunt build

Add the following code before the initialization:

var Powerange = require('powerange');

Make sure you're using the build/build.js and build/build.css files and you're ready.

There are some useful commands you can use:

$ grunt watch - watches for changes in the CSS and JS files in lib/ and updates the build files

$ grunt componentbuild - updates the files in build/

$ grunt uglify - makes new JS standalone files

$ grunt cssmin - makes new CSS standalone files

$ grunt clean - empties the contents of build/ and dist/ folders
