The slider field creates a slider where you can select a number by dragging a control.

This field uses jQuery UI library to create the UI.




Besides the common settings, this field has the following specific settings:

Name Description
prefix Text displayed before the field value. Optional.
suffix Text displayed after the field value. Optional.
js_options jQuery UI slider options. See here.

By default, Meta Box applies these default options for js_options:

Name Value Description
range min Create a range from the minimum value to one handle.
value $field['std'] Set the default field value.

Sample code

    'name' => 'Slider',
    'id'   => 'slider',
    'type' => 'slider',

    // Text labels displayed before and after value
    'prefix' => '$',
    'suffix' => ' USD',

    // jQuery UI slider options. See here
    'js_options' => array(
        'min'   => 10,
        'max'   => 255,
        'step'  => 5,

    'std' => 150,
    // 'clone' => true,


This field simply saves a single selected value (without the prefix and suffix) in the database.

If the field is cloneable, then the value is stored as a serialized array in a single row in the database.

Template usage

To get the field value, use the following code:

$value = rwmb_meta( $field_id );
echo $value;
