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 *@

@Volume
<br />
<TelerikSlider @bind-Value="@Volume"
               Min="0"
               Max="100"
               SmallStep="1"
               LargeStep="20"
               Width="400px">
</TelerikSlider>

@code{
    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.

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

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

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

Steps

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.

Orientation

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.

Decimals

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.

Validation

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

Parameters

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

Parameter Type Description
Decimals int Specifies the number precision for the steps.
Enabled bool whether the component is enabled.
LabelTemplate RenderFragment<TValue> lets you render your own custom labels for the major ticks.
LargeStep TValue defines where the larger (longer) ticks lie - they are rendered on every n-th occurrence of the LargeStep. Required. read more in ...
Max TValue the maximum value on the slider. Required.
Min TValue the minimum value on the slider. Required. Must be lower than the Max.
SmallStep TValue defines the step through which the slider Value is changed when the user drags the handle. Also defines where small ticks appear on the track to indicate a value that can be selected. Required.
Orientation SliderOrientation
(Horizontal)
whether the slider will be horizontal (the default) or vertical.
TickPosition SliderTickPosition
(Both)
controls the position of the ticks.
ShowButtons bool whether there will be increase and decrease buttons at the ends of the slider. Defaults to true.
Value and bind-Value TValue the value of the slider. Can be a numerical type (such as int, decimal, double and so on). When the user moves the drag handle of the slider, it changes with the SmallStep, but you can set a value programmatically that will land the handle between the ticks and between those steps.

Styling and Appearance

The following parameters enable you to customize the appearance of the Blazor Slider:

Parameter Type Description
Class string the CSS class that will be rendered on the main wrapping element of the slider.
Width stirng the width of the main element. In case you would like it to fit to a container you could set it to 100% or other percent value depending on the application needs. You can read more in the Dimensions article.
