Sliders allow users to make selections from a range of values.

Sliders reflect a range of values along a bar, from which users may select a single value. They are ideal for adjusting settings such as volume, brightness, or applying image filters.

Continuous sliders

Continuous sliders allow users to select a value along a subjective range.

Small steps

You can change the default step increment. Make sure to adjust the shiftStep prop (the granularity with which the slider can step when using Page Up/Down or Shift + Arrow Up/Down) to a value divadable with the step.

Range slider

The slider can be used to set the start and end of a range by supplying an array of values to the value prop.

Minimum distance

You can enforce a minimum distance between values in the onChange event handler. By default, when you move the pointer over a thumb while dragging another thumb, the active thumb will swap to the hovered thumb. You can disable this behavior with the disableSwap prop. If you want the range to shift when reaching minimum distance, you can utilize the activeThumb parameter in onChange.

Vertical sliders

WARNING: Chrome, Safari and newer Edge versions that is any browser based on WebKit exposes <Slider orientation="vertical" /> as horizontal (chromium issue #1158217). By applying -webkit-appearance: slider-vertical; the slider is exposed as vertical.

However, by applying -webkit-appearance: slider-vertical; keyboard navigation for horizontal keys (Arrow Left, Arrow Right) is reversed (chromium issue #1162640). Usually, up and right should increase and left and down should decrease the value. If you apply -webkit-appearance you could prevent keyboard navigation for horizontal arrow keys for a truly vertical slider. This might be less confusing to users compared to a change in direction.

Non-linear scale

You can use the scale prop to represent the value on a different scale.

In the following demo, the value x represents the value 2^x. Increasing x by one increases the represented value by factor 2.

The component handles most of the work necessary to make it accessible. However, you need to make sure that:

  • Each thumb has a user-friendly label (aria-label, aria-labelledby or getAriaLabel prop).
  • Each thumb has a user-friendly text for its current value. This is not required if the value matches the semantics of the label. You can change the name with the getAriaValueText or aria-valuetext prop.


IE 11

The slider's value label is not centered in IE 11. The alignment is not handled to make customizations easier with the latest browsers. You can solve the issue with:

.MuiSlider-valueLabel {
  left: calc(-50% - 4px);


Use the Base UI Slider for complete ownership of the component's design, with no Material UI or Joy UI styles to override. This unstyled version of the component is the ideal choice for heavy customization with a smaller bundle size.


See the documentation below for a complete reference to all of the props and classes available to the components mentioned here.
