The 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 disabled option is used to define whether the given slider is disabled or not. A disabled slider would be locked and hence not be able to be moved by the user. This option accepts a boolean value, where a value of true specifies the slider to be disabled and false specifies that it is not disabled.


{ disabled: boolean }


  • boolean: This is a boolean value that specifies whether the slider is disabled or not.
