script.aculo.us Sliders Axis Option

  • Last Updated : 20 Nov, 2020

The script.aculo.us library is a cross-browser library that aims to improving the user interface of a website. The Slider controls are thin tracks that allow the user to input values. It is done by defining a range of values that can be selected by the user by dragging the handle to the appropriate value.

The Sliders Axis option is used to define the axis or direction that the slider is supposed to move in. This option accepts a string value that can be set to ‘horizontal’ or ‘vertical’ depending on the direction required.

Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof.

Values: This option has two values as mentioned above and described below:



  • horizontal: This would define the direction of the slider to be horizontal. It is the default value.
  • vertical: This would define the direction of the slider to be vertical.

        .track {
