The Slider special field allows the user to drag a slider to select a value. A typical use for this element is to have the user indicate a rating or assessment along a single axis.
In this topic, we cover the general properties for this element. Learn about other properties in the Introduction to Validation and Layout Basics.
|Field Name||This is the name used to reference the field and is also the name of the column heading in the submission bin.|
|Style||Select one of the predefined style options.|
|Visible Labels||Specify the number of increment labels you want to display. The default is zero, which means no slider labels will appear. You may increase the number, but the maximum number of labels that will show depends on the settings in the Field Values property.|
|Slider Tips||Slider tips appear above the slider button, and change as the user moves the slider to different points along the slider bar. Set the value to false to prevent the display of any tooltips for the slider labels.|
|Label Source||If the Visible Labels property is set to true, the slider labels will appear at each increment along the bottom of the slider. The source content for these labels comes from either the Data Values or the Display Values found in the Field Values property (for this special field). Choose Data Value if you want to source the label text from Data Values; choose Display Value to source the label text from Display Values.|
|Tooltip Source||If the Slider Tips property is set to true, the slider tooltips will appear at each increment directly above the slider button. The source content for these tooltips comes from either the Data Values or the Display Values found in the Field Values property (for this special field). Choose Data Value if you want to source the tooltip text from Data Values; choose Display Value to source the tooltip text from Display Values.|
|Field Values||Click the button to display the Field Values window, in which you can add one or more Data Values. A Data Value is a unique reference for an increment in the slider, and the Display Value is the user-readable description-visible on the slider- that corresponds to the Data Value. Note: In the Label Source and Tooltip Source properties, you will choose which source you want to populate the labels and tooltips.The source is either the Data Values or the Display Values that you configure here in the Field Values property. Learn more about the Bind Value in Bindings. Click the Related Databuttons to change the data values.
|Tooltip||This is the tooltip for the entire slider element. Enter a short help comment to display nearby when the user hovers over the element.|
|Caption||Enter the caption text, which appears either beside or above the element.|
|Multi-line Caption||When the caption wraps, you may notice the line height is wrong. This is when you need to enable the multi-line feature by setting this property to true. Note: Keep in mind that you can increase the caption width so that the caption text does not wrap.|
|Admin Caption||This is the caption to use when viewing data via the submission bin record detail window. When left blank, the original caption is used instead.|
|Defaultvalue||Enter the text which will serve as the default entry until the user replaces the text.|
|Theme||Set this property to Inherit to use the Field SubTheme defined by the master theme for this form. Or, select a subTheme which will apply directly to this element. Once a subTheme is applied, you can edit it within the ThemeEditor. Learn more in Themes & Styles.|
|Dependency||Create a dependency to hide or show this element based on a rule. The field becomes "dependent" on other values entered on the form. Learn more in Dependencies.|
|Hidden||Set this property to true if you want this element to be hidden.|
|Hide Mode||This property determines how the element is hidden and if it will collapse within the space it would otherwise occupy.|
