Slider property definition

Note: STABLE.
This API is reliable and breaking changes are unlikely.

The slider definition property template can be used to add a custom property of slider type. When defining a slider property, the following fields can be used:

Field Description
type

Used for all custom property type definitions. Can be either string, integer, number, array or boolean.

This field is mandatory and should always be "number" for a slider property type definition.

Note: The slider effect is achieved by defining the component field to "slider", see below.
component Used for defining how the property is visualized in the property panel. Used to override the default component that comes with the type setting.

This field is mandatory for a slider property and should always be "slider".

label Used for defining the label that is displayed in the property panel.
ref Name or Id used to reference a property.
defaultValue Used for defining the default value of your custom property.
min Used for defining the minimum value of the property.
max Used for defining the maximum value of the property.
step Used for defining the step value of the property.

Examples

Defining a custom property of slider type can look like below.

Example: Add custom slider property to Appearance accordion

Note: Customization of properties always start with items:.
	return {
		type: "items",
		component: "accordion",
		items: {
			settings: {
				uses: "settings",
				items: {
					MySliderProp: {
						type: "number",
						component: "slider",
						label: "Range",
						ref: "myproperties.range",
						min: 10,
						max: 20,
						step: 0.5,
						defaultValue: 15
					}
				}
			}
This is what it looks like in the property panel

You can also define a new accordion item as a slider property.

Example: Add custom slider property as a new accordion item

	return {
		type: "items",
		component: "accordion",
		items: {
			MyAccordion: {
				type: "number",
				component: "slider",
				label: "My slider",
				ref: "myproperties.range",
				min: 10,
				max: 20,
				step: 0.5,
				defaultValue: 15
			}
