.NET MAUI Slider Ticks

The Slider for .NET MAUI can show ticks along the backtrack. Ticks help end users to more easily identify the selected value.

Ticks Step and Placement

To display ticks along the track, define the TickStep and TickPlacement properties of the Slider.

  • TickStep(double)—Defines the values on the backtrack that will be indicated by ticks. Each tick will be placed at the specified value interval. For example, if TickStep="5", your ticks will be placed on the 0, 5, 10, 15, and 20 positions on a 0-20 backtrack.
  • TicksPlacement(Telerik.Maui.Controls.RangeSlider.SliderTicksPlacement)—Defines where the ticks are displayed relative to the position of the backtrack. The available options are:
    • None—No ticks are displayed.
    • Start—The ticks appear above the backtrack.
    • Center—The ticks overlay the backtrack.
    • End—The ticks appear below the backtrack.

Slider SnapMode

The Slider for .NET MAUI provides snapping to ticks (the thumb snaps from tick to tick, ignoring the values in-between). This limits the selected Value to a predefined set of values related to the TickStep value. You can enable or disable snapping with the SnapMode property:

  • SnapMode(Telerik.Maui.Controls.RangeSlider.SliderSnapMode)—Defines whether the thumb should snap to a tick, ignoring the values between ticks. The available options are:
    • None—The end user can move the dragged thumb freely.
    • SnapToTicks—The thumb is snapped to the position of the ticks when an end user is dragging it.

The snippet below shows how to apply the ticks configuration settings:

<telerik:RadSlider x:Name="slider"
                   SnapMode="SnapToTicks" />

Tick Template

Through the TickTemplate property you can customize the appearance of the ticks.

  • TickTemplate(DataTemplate)—Defines the template of the Slider ticks.

Check below a sample TickTemplate example:

1. First define the custom DataTemplate:

<DataTemplate x:Key="CustomTickTemplate">
    <Rectangle WidthRequest="4"
               BackgroundColor="#7C59B6" />

2. Then apply it to the Slider's TickTemplate:

<telerik:RadSlider x:Name="slider"
                   TickTemplate="{StaticResource CustomTickTemplate}" />
