Slider

Sliders allow users to make selections from a range of values.

Sliders reflect a range of values along a bar, from which users may select a single value. They are ideal for adjusting settings such as volume, brightness, or applying image filters.

Discrete sliders

Discrete sliders can be adjusted to a specific value by referencing its value indicator. By order of demos:

  1. You can generate a mark for each step with marks={true}.
  2. You can change the default step increment.
  3. You can have custom marks by providing a rich array to the marks prop.
  4. You can restrict the selectable values to those provided with the marks prop with step={null}.
  5. You can force the thumb label to be always visible with valueLabelDisplay="on".

Accessibility

The component handles most of the work necessary to make it accessible. However, you need to make sure that:

  • Each thumb has a user-friendly label (aria-label, aria-labelledby or getAriaLabel prop).
  • Each thumb has a user-friendly text for its current value. This is not required if the value matches the semantics of the label. You can change the name with the getAriaValueText or aria-valuetext prop.
