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, the keys are for use with code:

PrefixprefixText displayed before the field value. Optional.
SuffixsuffixText displayed after the field value. Optional.
Slider optionsjs_optionsjQuery UI slider options. See here.

By default, Meta Box applies these default slider options:


If you set range to true, the plugin will save 2 values in the database, separated by pipe (|) character, e.g. 15|90.

This is a sample field settings array when creating this field with code:

'name' => 'Slider',
'id' => 'slider',
'type' => 'slider',
'prefix' => '$',
'suffix' => ' USD',
'js_options' => [
'min' => 10,
'max' => 255,
'step' => 5,

'std' => 150,


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

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

Template usage

<?php $value = rwmb_meta( 'my_field_id' ) ?>
<p>Selected value: <?= $value ?></p>

or simpler:
