asRange is a jQuery plugin which converts an input field (and even a DIV element) into an accessible, fully customizable range slider control allowing users to input a range of values.

Main features:

  • Allows to set initial/max/min values.
  • Custom step length.
  • Vertical or horizontal modes.
  • Keyboard interactions.
  • Custom tips and scales.
  • Lots of options, methods and events.

Basic usage:

1. To use this plugin, we need to load jQuery library and the jQuery asRange's files in the html file.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="asRange.css">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery-asRange.js"></script>

2. Create an input field (or a DIV element) for the range slider.

<div class="range-example-1"></div>
<!-- OR -->
<input class="range-example-input" type="text" min="0" max="10" value="5" name="points" step="0.01">

3. Call the function to render a basic range slider in the webpage.

$("SELECTOR").asRange({
  // options here
});

4. All default customization options for the range slider plugin.

$("SELECTOR").asRange({

  // namespace
  namespace: 'asRange',

  // requires additional skin file
  skin: null,

  // max value
  max: 100,

  // min value
  min: 0,

  // initial value
  value: null,

  // moving step at a time
  step: 10,

  // limit the range of the pointer moving
  limit: true,

  // initial range
  range: false,

  // 'v' or 'h'
  direction: 'h', 

  // enable keyboard interactions
  keyboard: true,

  // false, 'inherit', {'inherit': 'default'}
  replaceFirst: false, 

  // shows tips
  tip: true,

  // shows scales
  scale: true,

  // for formatting output
  format: function format(value) {
    return value;
  }

});

5. API methods.

// set the val
$("SELECTOR").asRange('val', '10');

// get the val
var value = $("SELECTOR").asRange('val');

// Set the range value
$("SELECTOR").asRange('set', '10');

// Get the range value.
var value = $("SELECTOR").asRange('get');

// Enable the range slider
$("SELECTOR").asRange('enable');

// Disable the range slider
$("SELECTOR").asRange('disable');

// Destroy the range slider.
$("SELECTOR").asRange('destroy');

6. Events.

// when init
$("SELECTOR").on('asRange::init', function (e) {
  // do something
});

// when ready
$("SELECTOR").on('asRange::ready', function (e) {
  // do something
});

// when enabled
$("SELECTOR").on('asRange::enable', function (e) {
  // do something
});

// when disabled
