The Slider component allows you to select predefined values by dragging a handle or clicking side buttons.

Slider Overview

The Slider component is a versatile UI element that allows users to select values within a specified range by dragging a handle along a track. It lets you enhance the user experience in web and application interfaces by tackling various use cases like adjusting settings, filtering data, or selecting numerical values.

Sliders provide built-in styling options that grant visually appealing and flexible rendering experience.


Depending on the action you want to imply through its appearance, the Telerik and Kendo UI Slider can acquire the following states which you can set by using the following classes:

  • A Slider in its normal state appears active, and is usable and clickable.
  • k-disabled—The disabled state indicates that a Slider is temporarily unclickable because, for example, the page requires additional user input or something important is missing before the user continues to the next step. To indicate that they are unavailable, Sliders in their disabled state are faded.

The Slider's handle has its own states that are independent from the states of the Slider component itself:

  • k-hover—The hover state of the Slider handle is applied when the user hovers over it but does not click it.
  • k-focus—The focus state of the Slider handle is triggered when the user navigates to it by keyboard, voice, or mouse click.
