# Slider

A slider is a horizontal track with a control called a thumb, which you can slide with your finger to move between a minimum and maximum value, such as screen brightness level or position during media playback.

The slider is an instance of the UISlider class.

Slider

A slider can optionally display left and right icons that illustrate the meaning of the minimum and maximum values.

## Configuring properties in the story board

The following properties shown on the figure below can be customized:

## Setting slider values

You can change the slider value in code as follows:

 1 2 // Sets the value to 80% and animates the change slider.SetValue(0.8f, true); 

## Slider events

You can set the ValueChanged event to get the values as the slider is moved as follows:

 1 2 3 slider.ValueChanged += (object sender, EventArgs e) => { Debug.WriteLine(slider.Value); }; 

The event can also be hooked in the storyboard on the Properties window Events section.

and wire up the method in the view controller as follows :

 1 2 3 4 partial void HandleValueChanged(UISlider sender) { // Implement to handle the changes on the slider }
