Blazor Slider Overview

The Blazor Slider component allows the user to select a value by dragging its handle along the track, or by clicking the side arrow buttons. It provides templates, various configuration options, validation and keyboard navigation.

Creating Slider

  1. Use the TelerikSlider tag to add the component to your razor page.

  2. Provide the Value (one-way data binding) or bind-Value (two-way data binding) property.

  3. Choose the Min, Max, SmallStep and LargeStep settings to define the appearance and behavior of the Slider.

@* The user can choose integers with a step of 1 and every 20 there will be a major tick *@

<br />
<TelerikSlider @bind-Value="@Volume"

    int Volume { get; set; } = 33;

Component Reference

The Slider is a generic component that takes the type of the Value which can be e numerical type.

<br />
<TelerikSlider @bind-Value="@TheValue" SmallStep="0.5m" LargeStep="5m" Min="0m" Max="20m" @ref="@TheSlider">

    Telerik.Blazor.Components.TelerikSlider<decimal> TheSlider { get; set; }

    decimal TheValue { get; set; } = 12.3m;


The Slider works with small and large steps and they are both required. Read more for their configuration and explore examples in the Steps article.

Ticks Position

The Slider lets you choose where its ticks will render. You can control that through the TickPosition parameter. It takes a member of the Telerik.Blazor.SliderTickPosition enum. Can be Before, After, Both (the default), None. For example, with the default horizontal slider, these values will render ticks above, below, both above and below, and no ticks.


You can customize the default horizontal orientation of the Slider through its Orientation parameter. Takes a member of the Telerik.Blazor.SliderOrientation enum which contains Horizontal(the default) and Vertical options.


This setting helps avoid round-off errors when calculating steps (see more about this type of errors here). Explore the Decimals article for details on how to configure this option.


You can validate Slider value using the built-in validation. See the Input Validation article for more details.


The Slider provides various parameters that allow you to configure the component:
