The library is a cross-browser library that aims at 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 onChange option is used to specify a callback function that would be invoked whenever the value of the slider changes, either when the slider has finished moving or using the setValue() method to set a new value. The current value of the slider would be passed as a parameter to the function.


{ onChange: function }

Parameters: This option has a single value as mentioned above and described below:

  • function: This is a callback function that would be invoked whenever the slider has finished moving or has been changed using the setValue() method.
