Slider

The Slider is used to allow users to make selections from a range of values.

chakra ui pro

Sliders reflect a range of values along a bar, from which users may select a single value. They are ideal for adjusting settings such as volume, brightness, or applying image filters.

Import#

Chakra UI export 4 components for Slider:

  • Slider: The wrapper that provides context and functionality for all children.
  • SliderTrack: The empty part of the slider that shows the track.
  • SliderFilledTrack: The filled part of the slider.
  • SliderThumb: The handle that's used to change the slider value.
import {
Slider,
SliderTrack,
SliderFilledTrack,
SliderThumb,
} from "@chakra-ui/react"

Usage#

Note: We recommend adding a aria-label or aria-labelledby prop to provide an accessible label for the Slider.

<Slider aria-label="slider-ex-1" defaultValue={30}>
<SliderTrack>
<SliderFilledTrack />
</SliderTrack>
<SliderThumb />
</Slider>

Changing the slider color scheme#

<Slider aria-label="slider-ex-2" colorScheme="pink" defaultValue={30}>
<SliderTrack>
<SliderFilledTrack />
</SliderTrack>
<SliderThumb />
</Slider>

Changing the slider orientation#

<Slider
aria-label="slider-ex-3"
defaultValue={30}
orientation="vertical"
minH="32"
>
<SliderTrack>
<SliderFilledTrack />
</SliderTrack>
<SliderThumb />
</Slider>

Customizing the Slider#

Slider component was designed to be composed to make it easy for you to customize its styles.

<Slider aria-label="slider-ex-4" defaultValue={30}>
<SliderTrack bg="red.100">
<SliderFilledTrack bg="tomato" />
</SliderTrack>
<SliderThumb boxSize={6}>
<Box color="tomato" as={MdGraphicEq} />
</SliderThumb>
</Slider>

Discrete Sliders#

Discrete sliders allow you to snap to predefined sets of values. This can be accomplished using the step prop.

<Slider defaultValue={60} min={0} max={300} step={30}>
<SliderTrack bg="red.100">
<Box position="relative" right={10} />
<SliderFilledTrack bg="tomato" />
</SliderTrack>
<SliderThumb boxSize={6} />
</Slider>

Getting the final value when dragging the slider#

Dragging the slider can trigger lots of updates and the user might only be interested in the final result after sliding is complete. You can use onChangeEnd for this.

<Slider aria-label="slider-ex-5" onChangeEnd={(val) => console.log(val)}>
<SliderTrack>
<SliderFilledTrack />
</SliderTrack>
<SliderThumb />
</Slider>

Configure thumb focus with focusThumbOnChange#

By default SliderThumb will receive focus whenever value changes. You can opt-out of this behavior by setting the value of focusThumbOnChange to false. This is normally used with a "controlled" slider value.

<Slider aria-label="slider-ex-5" value={value} focusThumbOnChange={false}>
<SliderTrack>
<SliderFilledTrack />
</SliderTrack>
<SliderThumb />
</Slider>

useSlider#

We've exported the useSlider hook to help users manage and build custom slider UIs.
