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.

histogramConfig HistogramConfig

The Histogram associated with the data represented on the slider. The bins are typically generated using the histogram statistics function.

See also:
Example:
histogram({
  layer: featureLayer,
  field: "fieldName",
  numBins: 30
}).then(function(histogramResult){
  // set the histogram to the slider
  slider.histogramConfig = {
    bins: histogramResult.bins
  };
});

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.

inputFormatFunction LabelFormatter
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.14

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
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.14

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){
  var charLength = value.length;
  var valuePrefix = parseFloat(value.substring(0,charLength-1));
  var 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;
}

The widget's label.

This property is useful whenever the widget is controlled by another one (e.g. Expand)

labelFormatFunction LabelFormatter

A modified version of Slider.labelFormatFunction, which is a custom function used to format labels on the thumbs, min, max, and average values. Overrides the default label formatter. This function also supports date formatting.

Example:
// For thumb values, rounds each label to whole numbers
slider.labelFormatFunction = function(value, type) {
  return (type === "value-change") ? value.toFixed(0): value;
}
max Number

The maximum value or upper bound of the slider. If the largest slider value in the constructor is greater than the max set in this property, then the max will update to match the largest slider value.

Example:
slider.max = 150;
min Number

The minimum value or lower bound of the slider. If the smallest slider value in the constructor is greater than the min set in this property, then the min will update to match the smallest slider value.

Example:
slider.min = -150;
precision Number
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.14

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;
state Stringreadonly

The state of the view model.

Possible Values:"ready"|"disabled"

zoomOptions Object

Zooms the slider track to the bounds provided in this property. When min and/or max zoom values are provided, the absolute min and max slider values are preserved and rendered at their typical positions on the slider. However, the slider track itself is zoomed so that thumbs cannot be moved above or below the provided min and max zoomed values.

When a slider is in a zoomed state, the zoomed ends of the track will appear jagged. In the image below, notice how the top thumb cannot be moved past the zoom max of 31 even though the slider max is 200.

slider-zoom

To exit a zoomed state, the user can click the jagged line or the developer can set the zoomOptions to null. It is up to the developer to provide a UI option for end users to enable zooming on the slider.

Setting the zoomOptions is useful when the slider is tied to heavily skewed datasets where the histogram renders only one or two bars because of outliers.

slider-not-zoomed

You can remove the influence of outliers by zooming the slider and regenerating a histogram based on the zoomed min and max. This will provide a better view of the data and make the slider more useful to the end user.

Properties:
min Number
optional

The lower bound of the zoom.

max Number
optional

The upper bound of the zoom.

Examples:
// zooms the slider to so thumbs can only be moved
// to positions between the values of 10 and 25 while
// maintaining the slider's absolute minimum and
// maximum values
slider.zoomOptions = {
  min: 10,
  max: 25
};
// disables zooming on the slider
slider.zoomOptions = null;
// zooms the slider to so thumbs can only be moved
// to positions above the value of 10, while maintaining
// the slider's absolute minimum value
slider.zoomOptions = {
  min: 10
};
// zooms the slider to so thumbs can only be moved
// to positions below the value of 25, while maintaining
// the slider's absolute maximum value
slider.zoomOptions = {
  max: 25
};
// zooms the slider to the handle positions
// with some padding
document.getElementById("zoomInButton").onclick = function() {
  const lowerThumb = slider.values[0];
  const upperThumb = slider.values[1];

  const range = upperThumb - lowerThumb;
  const padding = range * 0.3;

  const zoomMin = (lowerThumb - padding) > slider.min ? (lowerThumb - padding) : slider.min;
  const zoomMax = (upperThumb + padding) < slider.max ? (upperThumb + padding) : slider.max;

  slider.set({ zoomOptions: { min: zoomMin, max: zoomMax } });
};
