Hi there,

I am new to jquery and have a basic understanding of its benifits i am trying to add its functionality to my existing site.  I have managed to get this jquery UI slider component plugin working - http://www.filamentgroup.com/lab/update_jquery_ui_slider_from_a_select_element_now_with_aria_support/

I would like the slider to perform a javascript function everytime it changes. With the basic example

<select name="speed" id="speed">
  <option value="Slower">Slower</option>
  <option value="Slow">Slow</option>
  <option value="Med" selected="selected">Med</option>
  <option value="Fast">Fast</option>
  <option value="Faster">Faster</option>
</select>

I would normally add onchange to the select inorder to perform the function when a different value is selected, however with the jquery ui component this does not work. How should I approach this?

Referring to

http://jqueryui.com/demos/slider/
and
http://www.filamentgroup.com/lab/update_jquery_ui_slider_from_a_select_element_now_with_aria_support/

you can use all native options as 'sliderOptions'

see my code

$('select#valueAA, select#valueBB').selectToUISlider({

				labels: 12,

				// HERE WE GO

                                 sliderOptions:{

					change:function(){

						alert('Hello World');

					}

				}

			});

thank you for responding. I have tried:

                  $(function(){
                  $('#posted').selectToUISlider();            
                                // HERE WE GO
                                             sliderOptions:{
                                        change:function(){
                                                alert('Hello World');
                                        }
                                }


            });

But this just gets rid of the slider all together.

hmm, the function still isn't working when the slider is changed. I have changed the function to alert('Hello World'); and it still doesn't work. This is really frustrating.


<script type="text/javascript"> 

 

                  $(function(){

                  $('#posted').selectToUISlider();            

                                // HERE WE GO

                                             sliderOptions:{

                                        change:function(event,ui){

                                                alert('Hello World');                                        }

                                }

 

            });

 

      </script> 

 

 

 

 

<p>posted<p> 

<select name="posted" id="posted"> 

  <option value="" selected="selected">All</option> 

  <option value="1246537227"> Less than 24 Hours ago</option>

change works when the value in slider changes and it will frustrate if you use alter. do something else with this event 'change'

ok im finally getting somewhere, this code works fine apart from the ui.value seems to output the option number rather than the actual VALUE of the select box. For example in this:

<select name="posted" id="posted">
  <option value="2342342">hello</option>
  <option value="435435" >goodbye</option>
</select>

if goodbye was selected then ui.value = 2 where as i want it to be 435435.
<script type="text/javascript">

 $(function(){
 

$('#posted').selectToUISlider({

labels: 0,

sliderOptions: {

change:function(e, ui) {

paging('1', '','','1', '',ui.value , '', '');

}

}

}); 

}); 
 
 

      </script>

 
 
 

<p>posted<p>
 
 

<select name="posted" id="posted">

  <option value="" selected="selected">All</option>
 

  <option value="1246613721"> Less than 24 Hours ago</option>

  <option value="1246527321" >Less than 2 days ago</option>

  <option value="1246440921">Less than 3 days ago</option>

  <option value="1246354521">Less than 4 days ago</option>

  <option value="1246268121">Less than 5 days ago</option>

  <option value="1246181721">Less than 6 days ago</option>
 

  <option value="1246095321">Less than 7 days ago</option>

  <option value="1245490521">Less than 2 weeks ago</option>

</select>
