  • Horizontal & vertical layouts.
  • Readonly mode.
  • Executes a function on each value change.
  • Allows multiple slider instances on a page.
  • Allows you to pass options via HTML data attributes.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery mb.simpleSlider plugin's files after loading the latest jQuery library (slim build).

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js""></script>
<script src="inc/jquery.mb.browser.min.js"></script>
<script src="inc/jquery.mb.simpleSlider.min.js"></script>
<link href="css/simpleSlider.css" rel="stylesheet" />

2. Create a container to hold the slider control.

<div class="slider"></div>

3. Initialize the plugin to create a basic slider control.

var mySlider = $(".slider").simpleSlider({
    // options here

4. Set the initial value. Default: 0.

<div class="slider" data-initialval="50"></div>
// or
var mySlider = $(".slider").simpleSlider({
    initialval : 50

5. Set the max value. Default: 100.

// or
var mySlider = $(".slider").simpleSlider({
    maxVal : 255

6. Deterime the direction of the slider. Default: 'h' (horizontal).

<div class="slider" data-orientation="v"></div>
// or
var mySlider = $(".slider").simpleSlider({
    orientation : 'v'

7. Enable readonly mode. Default: false.

<div class="slider" data-readonly="true"></div>
// or
var mySlider = $(".slider").simpleSlider({
    readonly : true

8. Execute a callback function each time you change the value.

var mySlider = $(".slider").simpleSlider({
    callback: function (el) {
      // el.value

9. Update the value programmatically.


10. Override the default styles of the slider control.

.slider {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  right: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  margin: auto;
  width: 200px;
  height: 50px;
