Use a slider to control settings that have a wide range and where you want to provide a preview of the effect of the change, for example, settings like volume level or screen brightness. You can also use a slider to control the playback of media files.

This image shows a slider.

Users drag the slider from left to right, or double-tap the slider to jump to predefined increments.

Best practice

  • Combine sliders with images or strings that explain the context, such as the progress in a media file or the level of a filter that is being applied to a picture.
