Overview

Outputs a simple <label> with a HTML5 <input type="range"> wrapped in the standard <li> wrapper. This is an alternative input choice to a number input.

Sensible default for the min, max and step attributes are found by reflecting on the model's validations. When validations are not provided, the min and step default to 1 and the max default to 100. An IndeterminableMinimumAttributeError exception will be raised when the following conditions are all true:

  • you haven't specified a :min or :max for the input
  • the model's database column type is a :float or :decimal
  • the validation uses :less_than or :greater_than

The solution is to either:

  • manually specify the :min or :max for the input
  • change the database column type to an :integer (if appropriate)
  • change the validations to use :less_than_or_equal_to or :greater_than_or_equal_to

Examples:

Full form context and output


<%= semantic_form_for(@user) do |f| %>
  <%= f.inputs do %>
    <%= f.input :shoe_size, :as => :range %>
  <% end %>
<% end %>

<form...>
  <fieldset>
    <ol>
      <li class="numeric">
        <label for="user_shoe_size">Shoe size</label>
        <input type="range" id="user_shoe_size" name="user[shoe_size]" min="1" max="100" step="1">
      </li>
    </ol>
  </fieldset>
</form>

Default HTML5 min/max/step attributes are detected from the numericality validations


class Person < ActiveRecord::Base
  validates_numericality_of :age, 
    :less_than_or_equal_to => 100, 
    :greater_than_or_equal_to => 18, 
    :only_integer => true
end

<%= f.input :age, :as => :number %>

<li class="numeric">
  <label for="persom_age">Age</label>
  <input type="range" id="person_age" name="person[age]" min="18" max="100" step="1">
</li>

Pass attributes down to the <input> tag with :input_html

<%= f.input :shoe_size, :as => :range, :input_html => { :min => 3, :max => 15, :step => 1, :class => "special" } %>

Min/max/step also work as options

<%= f.input :shoe_size, :as => :range, :min => 3, :max => 15, :step => 1, :input_html => { :class => "special" } %>

Use :in with a Range as a shortcut for :min/:max

<%= f.input :shoe_size, :as => :range, :in => 3..15, :step => 1 %>
<%= f.input :shoe_size, :as => :range, :input_html => { :in => 3..15, :step => 1 } %>
