Property Details

The ID or node representing the DOM element containing the widget. This property can only be set once. The following examples are all valid use cases when working with widgets.

Examples
// Create the HTML div element programmatically at runtime and set to the widget's container
const basemapGallery = new BasemapGallery({
  view: view,
  container: document.createElement("div")
});

// Add the widget to the top-right corner of the view
view.ui.add(basemapGallery, {
  position: "top-right"
});
// Specify an already-defined HTML div element in the widget's container

const basemapGallery = new BasemapGallery({
  view: view,
  container: basemapGalleryDiv
});

// Add the widget to the top-right corner of the view
view.ui.add(basemapGallery, {
  position: "top-right"
});

// HTML markup
<body>
  <div id="viewDiv"></div>
  <div id="basemapGalleryDiv"></div>
</body>
// Specify the widget while adding to the view's UI
const basemapGallery = new BasemapGallery({
  view: view
});

// Add the widget to the top-right corner of the view
view.ui.add(basemapGallery, {
  position: "top-right"
});
declaredClass Stringreadonly inherited

The name of the class. The declared class name is formatted as esri.folder.className.

disabled Boolean

When true, sets the slider to a disabled state so the user cannot interact with it.

Default Value:false
draggableSegmentsEnabled Boolean

Indicates if the user can drag the segment between thumbs to update thumb positions.

Default Value:true
Example
// disables draggable segments
slider.draggableSegmentsEnabled = false;
effectiveMax Number
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.23

When set, the user is restricted from moving slider thumbs to positions higher than this value. This value should be less than the slider max. The effectiveMax and effectiveMin allow you to represent ranges of values in a dataset that cannot be filtered or selected with the slider. This can be useful when using the slider to represent datasets with outliers, or scale ranges not suitable for a layer.

Example
// slider.max = 100
slider.effectiveMax = 60;
// now the user cannot slide thumbs above
// 60 even though the slider track displays
// values up to 100.
effectiveMin Number
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.23

When set, the user is restricted from moving slider thumbs to positions less than this value. This value should be greater than the slider min. The effectiveMin and effectiveMax allow you to represent ranges of values in a dataset that cannot be filtered or selected with the slider. This can be useful when using the slider to represent datasets with outliers, or scale ranges not suitable for a layer.

Example
// slider.min = 0
slider.effectiveMin = 4;
// now the user cannot slide thumbs below
// 4 even though the slider track displays
// values down to 0.
effectiveSegmentElements Collection<HTMLElement>readonly
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.23

The HTML Element nodes representing the slider segment between the min and effectiveMin, and the segment between the effectiveMax and max. You can use this property to customize the style and attach event handlers to these segments. This only applies to sliders where the effectiveMin and effectiveMax are specified.

Example
slider.effectiveSegmentElements.forEach( segmentElement => segmentElement.classList.add("redLine") );

The unique ID assigned to the widget when the widget is created. If not set by the developer, it will default to the container ID, or if that is not present then it will be automatically generated.

inputCreatedFunction InputCreatedFunction

A function that provides the developer with access to the input elements when rangeLabelInputsEnabled and/or labelInputsEnabled are set to true. This allows the developer to customize the input elements corresponding to slider min/max and thumb values to validate user input. For example, you can access input elements and customize them with type and pattern attributes.

See also
Example
// Sets the slider thumb inputs as number inputs
slider.inputCreatedFunction = function(input, type, index){
  input.setAttribute("type", "number");
  input.setAttribute("pattern", "[0-9]*");
};
inputFormatFunction LabelFormatter

A function used to format user inputs. As opposed to labelFormatFunction, which formats thumb labels, the inputFormatFunction formats thumb values in the input element when the user begins to edit them.

The image below demonstrates how slider input values resemble corresponding slider values by default and won't match the formatting set in labelFormatFunction.

Slider without input formatter

If you want to format slider input values so they match thumb labels, you can pass the same function set in labelFormatFunction to inputFormatFunction for consistent formatting.

Slider with input formatter

However, if an inputFormatFunction is specified, you must also write a corresponding inputParseFunction to parse user inputs to understandable slider values. In most cases, if you specify an inputFormatFunction, you should set the labelFormatFunction to the same value for consistency between labels and inputs.

This property overrides the default input formatter, which formats by calling toString() on the input value.

See also
Example
// Formats the slider input to abbreviated numbers with units
// e.g. a thumb at position 1500 will render with an input label of 1.5k
slider.inputFormatFunction = function(value, type){
  if(value >= 1000000){
    return (value / 1000000).toPrecision(3) + "m"
  }
  if(value >= 100000){
    return (value / 1000).toPrecision(3) + "k"
  }
  if(value >= 1000){
    return (value / 1000).toPrecision(2) + "k"
  }
  return value.toFixed(0);
}
inputParseFunction InputParser

Function used to parse slider inputs formatted by the inputFormatFunction. This property must be set if an inputFormatFunction is set. Otherwise the slider values will likely not update to their expected positions.

Overrides the default input parses, which is a parsed floating point number.

See also
Example
// Parses the slider input (a string value) to a number value understandable to the slider
// This assumes the slider was already configured with an inputFormatFunction
// For example, if the input is 1.5k this function will parse
// it to a value of 1500
slider.inputParseFunction = function(value, type, index){
  let charLength = value.length;
  let valuePrefix = parseFloat(value.substring(0,charLength-1));
  let finalChar = value.substring(charLength-1);

  if(parseFloat(finalChar) >= 0){
    return parseFloat(value);
  }
  if(finalChar === "k"){
    return valuePrefix * 1000;
  }
  if(finalChar === "m"){
    return valuePrefix * 1000000;
  }
  return value;
}
label String

The widget's default label. This label displays when it is used within another widget, such as the Expand or LayerList widgets.

labelElements Collection<HTMLElement>readonly
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

The HTML Element nodes representing labels attached to slider thumbs. You can use this property to customize the style of labels and attach event handlers to each element.

Example
slider.labelElements.forEach( labelElement => labelElement.classList.add("newStyle") );
labelFormatFunction LabelFormatter

A function used to format labels. Overrides the default label formatter.

By default labels are formatted in the following way:

  • When the data range is less than 10 ((max - min) < 10), labels are rounded based on the value set in the precision property.
  • When the data range is larger than 10, labels display with a precision of no more than two decimal places, though actual slider thumb values will maintain the precision specified in precision.

Use this property to override the behavior defined above.

Example
// For thumb values, rounds each label to whole numbers.
// Note the actual value of the thumb continues to be stored
// based on the indicated data `precision` despite this formatting
slider.labelFormatFunction = function(value, type) {
  return (type === "value") ? value.toFixed(0) : value;
}
labelInputsEnabled Boolean

Indicates whether to enable editing input values via keyboard input when the user clicks a label. This allows the user to move the slider thumb to precise values without sliding the thumbs.

Slider editable labels

Default Value:false
Example
// allows the slider input label to be used for keyboard input
slider.labelInputsEnabled = true;
labels String[]readonly

An array of strings associated with 'values' generated using an internal label formatter or the values returned from labelFormatFunction.

layout String

Determines the layout/orientation of the Slider widget. By default, the slider will render horizontally with the min value on the left side of the track. The possible values are described below.

horizontal

Slider horizontal not reversed

horizontal-reversed

When the slider is set to horizontal-reversed, the max value will render on the left side and the min on the right.

Slider horizontal reversed

vertical

When the slider is set to vertical, the max value will render on the top of the track and the min on the bottom.

Slider vertical not reversed

vertical-reversed

When the slider is set to vertical-reversed, the max value will render on the bottom of the track and the min on the top.

Slider vertical reversed

Possible Values:"horizontal"|"horizontal-reversed"|"vertical"|"vertical-reversed"

Default Value:horizontal
Example
slider.layout = "vertical";
max Number

The maximum possible data/thumb value of the slider. In the constructor, if one of the values specified in values is greater than the max value specified in this property, then the max will update to the highest value in values.

To display the max value's label on the slider, set visibleElements.rangeLabels to true. To allow the end user to modify the max value, set rangeLabelInputsEnabled to true.

See also
Example
const slider = new Slider({
  container: "sliderDiv",
  min: 0,
  max: 100,
  values: [ 50 ]
});
maxLabelElement HTMLElementreadonly
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

The HTML Element node representing the max value label. You can use this property to customize the style and attach event handlers.

Examples
slider.maxLabelElement.classList.add('maxClass');
slider.maxLabelElement.addEventListener('click', () => {
  slider.values = [ slider.max ];
});
min Number

The minimum possible data/thumb value of the slider. In the constructor, if one of the values specified in values is less than the min value specified in this property, then the min will update to the lowest value in values.

To display the min value's label on the slider, set visibleElements.rangeLabels to true. To allow the end user to modify the min value, set rangeLabelInputsEnabled to true.

See also
Example
const slider = new Slider({
  container: "sliderDiv",
  min: 0,
  max: 100,
  values: [ 50 ]
});
minLabelElement HTMLElementreadonly
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

The HTML Element node representing the min value label. You can use this property to customize the style and attach event handlers.

Examples
slider.minLabelElement.classList.add('minClass');
slider.minLabelElement.addEventListener('click', () => {
  slider.values = [ slider.min ];
});
precision Number

Defines how slider thumb values should be rounded. This number indicates the number of decimal places slider thumb values should round to when they have been moved.

This value also indicates the precision of thumb labels when the data range is less than 10 (i.e. (max - min) < 10).

When the data range is larger than 10, labels display with a precision of no more than two decimal places, though actual slider thumb values will maintain the precision specified in this property.

For example, given the default precision of 4, and the following slider configuration, The labels of the thumbs will display two decimal places, but the precision of the actual thumb values will not be lost even when the user slides or moves the thumb.

const slider = new Slider({
  min: 20,
  max: 100,  // data range of 80
  values: [50.4331],
  // thumb label will display 50.43
  // thumb value will maintain precision, so
  // value will remain at 50.4331
  container: "sliderDiv"
});

If the user manually enters a value that has a higher precision than what's indicated by this property, the precision of that thumb value will be maintained until the thumb is moved by the user. At that point, the value will be rounded according to the indicated precision.

If thumb labels aren't visible, they must be enabled with labelInputsEnabled.

Keep in mind this property rounds thumb values and shouldn't be used exclusively for formatting purposes. To format thumb labels, use the labelFormatFunction property.

Default Value:4
Example
slider.precision = 7;
rangeLabelInputsEnabled Boolean

Indicates whether to enable editing range values via keyboard input when the user clicks a min or max label. This allows the user to increase or decrease the data range of the slider.

Slider editable range labels

Default Value:false
Example
slider.viewModel.rangeLabelInputsEnabled = false;
segmentElements Collection<HTMLElement>readonly
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

The HTML Element nodes representing interactive slider segments. Segments are interactive when situated between two thumbs. You can use this property to customize the style and attach event handlers to segments.

Example
slider.segmentElements.forEach( segmentElement => segmentElement.classList.add("thickLine") );
snapOnClickEnabled Boolean

Indicates if the closest thumb will snap to the clicked location on the track.

Default Value:true
Example
// disables snapping thumb values by click
slider.viewModel.snapOnClickEnabled = false;
state Stringreadonly

The current state of the widget.

Possible Values:"ready"|"disabled"|"editing"|"dragging"

Sets steps, or intervals, on the slider that restrict user input to specific values. If an array of numbers is passed to this property, the slider thumbs may only be moved to the positions specified in the array.

If a single number is set, then steps are set along the entire slider range at an interval of the provided value. In this scenario, the user may only slide the thumbs to values at the provided interval. For example, if a value of 0.5 is set here, and the slider min is 0 and the slider max is 10, then the user will only be able to update the thumbs to values of 0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, etc.

Examples
// set steps at an interval of 0.5. So the
// slider thumb snaps at values of 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, etc.
slider.steps = 0.5;
// Set steps at specific slider positions
slider.steps = [ 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 ];
syncedSegmentsEnabled Boolean
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

When true, all segments will sync together in updating thumb values when the user drags any segment. This maintains the interval between all thumbs when any segment is dragged. Only applicable when draggableSegmentsEnabled is true.

Default Value:false
Example
slider.draggableSegmentsEnabled = true;
slider.syncedSegmentsEnabled = true;
thumbCreatedFunction ThumbCreatedFunction

Function that executes each time a thumb is created on the slider. This can be used to add custom styling to each thumb or hook event listeners to specific thumbs.

Example
slider.thumbCreatedFunction = function(index, value, thumbElement) {
  thumbElement.classList.add("change-color");
  thumbElement.addEventListener("focus", function() {
    // add custom behavior here...tooltips, fire other actions, etc.
  });
});
thumbElements Collection<HTMLElement>readonly
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

The HTML Element nodes representing slider thumbs. You can use this property to customize the style of thumbs and attach event handlers to each thumb.

Example
slider.thumbElements.forEach( thumbElement => thumbElement.classList.add("greenThumb") );
thumbsConstrained Boolean

When false, the user can freely move any slider thumb to any position along the track. By default, a thumb's position is constrained to the positions of neighboring thumbs so you cannot move one thumb past another. Set this property to false to disable this constraining behavior.

Default Value:true
Example
// allows the user to freely move slider
// thumbs to any position along the track
slider.thumbsConstrained = false;
tickConfigs TickConfig[]

When set, renders ticks along the slider track. See the TickConfig documentation for more information on how to configure tick placement, style, and behavior.

Examples
// places 25 ticks on the slider track
// evenly spaced from one another
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "count",
  values: 25
}];
// places ticks spanning the width of
// the slider at 20% intervals from one another
// this is the equivalent of setting mode to 'count'
// and the values to 5.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "percent",
  values: 20
}];
// Places three ticks on the slider: one positioned
// 10% of the width from the start (or min value), another
// directly in the middle (50% from the start), and
// another 90% of the width from the start of the slider.
// Because the values are %s the values are always relative
// regardless of the range of the slider values.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "percent",
  values: [ 10, 50, 90 ]
}];
// Places 5 ticks on the slider at the slider values
// provided below. These are absolute positions.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "position",
  values: [ 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 ]
}];
// Places a single tick at the location of the value of 5.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "position",
  values: 5
}];
// Renders three groups of ticks. The first is a basic set
// of 25 ticks. The second places 4 ticks and adds custom
// CSS classes to modify their styling. The third adds
// a click event handler to the tick labels.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "count",
  values: 25
}, {
  mode: "percent",
  values: [12.5, 37.5, 62.5, 87.5],
  labelsVisible: true,
  tickCreatedFunction: function(initialValue, tickElement, labelElement) {
    tickElement.classList.add("mediumTicks");
    labelElement.classList.add("mediumLabels");
  }
}, {
  mode: "count",
  values: 5,
  labelsVisible: true,
  tickCreatedFunction: function(initialValue, tickElement, labelElement) {
    tickElement.classList.add("largeTicks");
    labelElement.classList.add("largeLabels");
    labelElement.onclick = function() {
      const newValue = labelElement["data-value"];
      slider.values = [ newValue ];
    };
  }
}];
tickElements Collection<Collection<TickElementGroup>>readonly
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

  const newValue = labelElement["data-value"];
  const setValue = () => {
    slider.values = [ newValue ];
  };
  tickElement.addEventListener("click", setValue);
  tickElement.style.cursor = "pointer";
  labelElement.addEventListener("click", setValue);
  labelElement.style.cursor = "pointer";
});

labelElement HTMLElement
optional

The HTMLElement representing the label of the thumb. You can add or modify the default style of the thumb's labels by adding CSS classes to this element. You can also add custom behavior to thumb labels by attaching event listeners to individual elements.

TickConfig

Object specification for configuring ticks on the slider. An array of these objects should be set on the tickConfigs property.

Properties
mode String

The mode or method of positioning ticks along the slider track. See the table below for a list of possible values.

Possible Value Description
count Places a fixed number of ticks (provided in the values property) at equal distances from each other below the slider track.
percent When set, and a single number is set on the values property, ticks will be placed at the specified percentage interval along the length of the slider. For example, when mode is percent and values is 5, then 20 ticks will be placed below the slider track (at 5-percent intervals from each other). If an array of values is provided, the values are interpreted as percentages along the slider. So if values is [10, 50, 90], then three ticks will be placed below the track; one at the midway point, and two 10 percent of the length from either end of the slider.
position Indicates that ticks will only be placed at the values specified in the values property.

// places 25 ticks on the slider track
// evenly spaced from one another
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "count",
  values: 25
}];
// places ticks spanning the width of
// the slider at 20% intervals from one another
// this is the equivalent of setting mode to 'count'
// and the values to 5.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "percent",
  values: 20
}];
// Places three ticks on the slider: one positioned
// 10% of the width from the start (or min value), another
// directly in the middle (50% from the start), and
// another 90% of the width from the start of the slider.
// Because the values are %s the values are always relative
// regardless of the range of the slider values.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "percent",
  values: [ 10, 50, 90 ]
}];
// Places 5 ticks on the slider at the slider values
// provided below. These are absolute positions.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "position",
  values: [ 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 ]
}];
// Places a single tick at the location of the value of 5.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "position",
  values: 5
}];
// Renders three groups of ticks. The first is a basic set
// of 25 ticks. The second places 4 ticks and adds custom
// CSS classes to modify their styling. The third adds
// a click event handler to the tick labels.
slider.tickConfigs = [{
  mode: "count",
  values: 25
}, {
  mode: "percent",
  values: [12.5, 37.5, 62.5, 87.5],

      slider.values = [ newValue ];
    };
  }
}];
TickCreatedFunction(value, tickElement, labelElement)

Function that fires each time a tick is created. It provides you access to each tick element so you can add custom CSS and attach event listeners to individual ticks. This function should be set to the tickCreatedFunction property of the TickConfig.
