#4668 closed defect (worksforme)

Programmatic slider does not work correctly

I have already reported this in a forum posting (

I am using 0.9.0 final. When a slider (I tried vertical only), is created through code, some features work and some don't.

What works:

  • Displays correctly (didn't try labels).
  • Clicking on individual values on slider fires onChange event.

What doesn't work:

  • onChange event not fired when using +/- buttons.
  • Unable to drag control button to change value.
  • Mouse wheel moves control button up/down, but does not fire onChange events.

The following seems to work correctly using the current dijit trunk:

<input id="sliderinput"><br>
<div id="slider"></div>
var _slider = new dijit.form.VerticalSlider({ name:"slider",
minimum:0, maximum:10, discreteValues:11, style:"height:400px;"}, "slider");

In 0.9 final, the arrow keys do not fire onChange events until an onBlur event is received by the widget, unless you specify intermediateChanges: true
In 1.0, the arrow keys fire onChange independently of this boolean attribute.

Also, make sure that programmatic widget creation is inside a dojo.addOnLoad call since require calls are asynchronous.

I am currently still using 0.9 final. Creating the slider programmatically has the issues I listed originally. With the following changes, the +/- buttons and the mouse wheel work. Can someone please validate these changes?

_bumpValue: function(signedChange){ ...; this.setValue(value); }


_bumpValue: function(signedChange, priorityChange) { ...; this.setValue(value, priorityChange); }


increment/decrement: function(...) { _bumpValue(..., true); }

Sorry for another post. Setting slider.intermediateChanges = true fixed my issues. I don't need the above changes.

thanks Jayant
