This component lets the user select from a range between two predefined numbers based on the particular field. See the Search filter component for full details of how to use widgets in a search query.

Resetting the slider value

The query fragment represented by the slider will not be added to the query until a value is selected by the user. However, once the slider has been moved, there is no way to use it to go back to the initial state (ie, the query fragment will be present regardless of the final value of the slider). This can be a problem in cases where even a zero or minimum value can affect the query.

To handle this situation, the slider comes with a Clear button to reset the value to the initial state. When the user clicks this button, the slider control is set to the min value or zero and the corresponsing query fragment is removed from the query.
