Sliders provide a visual indication of adjustable content, where the user can move the handle along a horizontal track to increase or decrease the value.
The slider in its basic form should be accompanied by a label and a number input that doubles as a display for the slider’s current value. The basic slider does not include discrete values, as the slider represents a percentage of 0-100. In this case it is not necessary for a user to choose a specific value, but instead generally increase or decrease an input. For example, the user increases the slider amount and the volume of the music gets louder. The more complex versions should be used for selecting a specific value within a value range.
Users can choose a numerical value by:
→changes the inputted value from 59 to 60, increasing the value by 1 unit.
Shift+ ↑ ↓ ← → changes the value by 10 step size increments. Example: Typing
Shift+ → changes the value from 60 to 70, increasing the inputted value by 10 units.
