Hello,
Telerik team,

I am facing an issue while I am setting the maximum and minimum value of the slider, If i set minimum value as 0 and maximum value as 40000000 the page doesn't load at all. Here is the code below :

 var MInvestmentTarget = $("#MInvestmentTarget").kendoSlider({   
                    min: 0,
                    max: 40000000,
                    tickPlacement: "none",
                    showButtons: false
                }).data("kendoSlider"),
                    MInvestmentTarget = function (e) {
                        if (e.type != "keypress" || kendo.keys.ENTER == e.keyCode) {
                            var value = parseInt($("#InvestmentTargettxtBoxValue").val());
                            if (isNaN(value) || value < 0 || value > 40000000){
                                alert("Value must be a number between 0 and 40000000");
                                return;
                            }
                            MInvestmentTarget.value(value);
                        }
 }; 

The page takes a long time to load in any of the browser and finally it crashes.

If I give the maximum value as 4000000, it works perfectly fine. The page loads properly.

So I want to know if there is a limit on the Maximum value that can be given for the slider ?
Or is it a mistake in the code which is causing this error.

Awaiting your response

Thanks 
Pavan

Hello,

The described behavior is caused by the fact that when the max value is a large number, and smallStep and largeStep options are not set to be in some adequate proportion, it is impossible for the widget to correctly calculate all positions for values between the min and max values.

We are not able to give an estimate of the largest number that can be used without specifying smallStep and largeStep, as this will vary between browsers, and systems, but in all cases it is strongly recommended to set the mentioned configuration options:

If the scenario requirements prohibit the suggested approach, a Kendo UI NumericTextBox might be the more suitable widget.
