Plain NativeScript

IMPORTANT: Make sure you include xmlns:mds="@nativescript-community/ui-material-slider" on the Page element.


<Page xmlns:mds="@nativescript-community/ui-material-slider">
<StackLayout horizontalAlignment="center">
<mds:Slider value="50" minValue="0" maxValue="100" />


mdslider {
ripple-color: blue;
elevation: 4;

NativeScript + Angular

import { NativeScriptMaterialSliderModule } from "@nativescript-community/ui-material-slider/angular";

imports: [
<MDSlider value="50" minValue="0" maxValue="100"></MDSlider>

NativeScript + Vue

import SliderPlugin from '@nativescript-community/ui-material-slider/vue';

<MDSlider value="50" minValue="0" maxValue="100" @valueChange="onValueChanged"/>

Or you can bind the value to some instance data using the v-model directive:

<MDSlider v-model="value" minValue="0" maxValue="100"/>



Inherite from NativeScript Slider so it already has all the same attributes.

  • stepSize optional

    • An attribute to set the step size of the slider. Without this attribute, it behaves as a continuous slider.
  • elevation optional

    • An attribute to set the elevation of the slider. This will increase the 'drop-shadow' of the slider.
  • rippleColor optional

    • An attribute to set the ripple color of the slider.
  • trackFillColor optional

    • Sets the color of the filled track.
    • Defaults to your theme's colorPrimary.
  • trackBackgroundColor optional

    • Sets the color of the background track.
  • thumbColor optional

    • Sets the color of the slider's thumb.
    • Defaults to your theme's colorPrimary.
