Minimal Draggable Range Selection Plugin For jQuery - d3RangeSlider

A minimal, clean jQuery range slider plugin which enables you to select a range of numeric value via drag and drop.

How to use it:

1. Load the necessary jQuery library in your html document.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>

2. Download and load the d3RangeSlider plugin's JS & CSS files in the document.

<link href="d3RangeSlider.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="d3RangeSlider.js"></script>

3. Create an empty container in which you want to render the range slider.

<div id="slider-container"></div>

4. Create a new JQDRangeslider and specify the range you can select from.

var slider = createD3RangeSlider(0, 100, "#slider-container");

5. The plugin creates a jquery-drag range slider that selects ranges between `rangeMin` and `rangeMax`, and add it to the 'containerSelector'. The contents of the container is laid out as follows:

<div id="slider-container"></div>
<div id="range-label">0 - 10</div>

6. The appearance can be changed with CSS, but the 'position' must be 'relative', and the width of '.drag' should be left unaltered.

#slider-container {
  position: relative;
  background-color: #eeeef5;

7. Return or set the range depending on arguments.

  • If 'b' and 'e' are both numbers then the range is set to span from 'b' to 'e'.
  • If 'b' is a number and 'e' is undefined the beginning of the slider is moved to 'b'.
  • If both 'b' and 'e' are undefined the currently set range is returned as an object with 'begin' and 'end' attributes.
  • If any arguments cause the range to be outside of the 'rangeMin' and 'rangeMax' specified on slider creation then a warning is printed and the range correspondingly clamped.

8. Show the current range selected by your user.
