Slider Input Widget

sliderInput(inputId, label, min, max, value, step = NULL, round = FALSE,
  format = NULL, locale = NULL, ticks = TRUE, animate = FALSE,
  width = NULL, sep = ",", pre = NULL, post = NULL, timeFormat = NULL,
  timezone = NULL, dragRange = TRUE)

animationOptions(interval = 1000, loop = FALSE, playButton = NULL,
  pauseButton = NULL)


inputId The input slot that will be used to access the value.
label Display label for the control, or NULL for no label.
min The minimum value (inclusive) that can be selected.
max The maximum value (inclusive) that can be selected.
value The initial value of the slider. A numeric vector of length one will create a regular slider; a numeric vector of length two will create a double-ended range slider. A warning will be issued if the value doesn't fit between min and max.
step Specifies the interval between each selectable value on the slider (if NULL, a heuristic is used to determine the step size). If the values are dates, step is in days; if the values are times (POSIXt), step is in seconds.
round TRUE to round all values to the nearest integer; FALSE if no rounding is desired; or an integer to round to that number of digits (for example, 1 will round to the nearest 10, and -2 will round to the nearest .01). Any rounding will be applied after snapping to the nearest step.
format Deprecated.
locale Deprecated.
ticks FALSE to hide tick marks, TRUE to show them according to some simple heuristics.
animate TRUE to show simple animation controls with default settings; FALSE not to; or a custom settings list, such as those created using animationOptions.
width The width of the input, e.g. '400px', or '100%'; see validateCssUnit.
sep Separator between thousands places in numbers.
pre A prefix string to put in front of the value.
post A suffix string to put after the value.
timeFormat Only used if the values are Date or POSIXt objects. A time format string, to be passed to the Javascript strftime library. See for more details. The allowed format specifications are very similar, but not identical, to those for R's strftime function. For Dates, the default is "%F" (like "2015-07-01"), and for POSIXt, the default is "%F %T" (like "2015-07-01 15:32:10").
timezone Only used if the values are POSIXt objects. A string specifying the time zone offset for the displayed times, in the format "+HHMM" or "-HHMM". If NULL (the default), times will be displayed in the browser's time zone. The value "+0000" will result in UTC time.
dragRange This option is used only if it is a range slider (with two values). If TRUE (the default), the range can be dragged. In other words, the min and max can be dragged together. If FALSE, the range cannot be dragged.
interval The interval, in milliseconds, between each animation step.
loop TRUE to automatically restart the animation when it reaches the end.
playButton Specifies the appearance of the play button. Valid values are a one-element character vector (for a simple text label), an HTML tag or list of tags (using tag and friends), or raw HTML (using HTML).
pauseButton Similar to playButton, but for the pause button.


Constructs a slider widget to select a numeric value from a range.


## Only run examples in interactive R sessions if (interactive()) { options(device.ask.default = FALSE) ui <- fluidPage( sliderInput("obs", "Number of observations:", min = 0, max = 1000, value = 500 ), plotOutput("distPlot") ) # Server logic server <- function(input, output) { output$distPlot <- renderPlot({ hist(rnorm(input$obs)) }) } # Complete app with UI and server components shinyApp(ui, server) }
