Implement wizard step UI navigation with jquery slider in MVC view

I have asp.net MVC2 app and have implemented wizard navigation to complete a customer survey.

Customers can fill out different surveys and each survey has a different number of questions.

A survey is loaded and each question is displayed one at a time with a NEXT button to proceed onto next question.

I need to implement something like a jquery slider/progress bar plugin or something experts can recommend

http://jqueryui.com/demos/slider/#rangemax
or something like
http://jqueryui.com/demos/progressbar/

so as a user progresses through survey by clicking the next button the slider progresses as well.
In the view I can get the total number of questions to use this as the range max.
How can I implement this?

Ideally I want something from the jquery core like this

http://jqueryui.com/demos/slider/#rangemax

I need a code snippet of how to pass the number of questions to the slider so it progresses correctly.

If i have understood the requirement correctly, you are looking for
Number of steps in the wizard
http://jqueryui.com/demos/slider/#option-step

<<I need a code snippet of how to pass the number of questions to the slider so it progresses correctly.>>
How would you like to distribute the questions among screens?

What I do is have an MVC ActionResult that returns one question at a time.

My view inherits from a viewmodel that passes in the total number of questions and the current question.

If you give min as '1' and max as 'number of questions', doesn't that give you what you are looking for?
$("#slider-range-max").slider({
                  range: "max",
                  min: 1, \\starting point
                  max: 10, \\number of questions
                  value: 2,
                  slide: function(event, ui) {
                        $("#amount").val(ui.value);
                  }
            });

Hi Yes

It does but I am unsure of how to pass this to the jquery function from hidden fields in my view

So in my view I have

 <input name="currentQuestionNo" type="hidden" value="<%Model.customer.qustID%>" />
<input name="totalQuestions" type="hidden" value="<%Model.customer.qustID%>" />


How can I pass  questionNo to the jquery

$("#slider-range-max").slider({
                  range: "max",
                  min: 1, \\starting point
                  max: 10,                          // totalQuestions from hidden field
                  value: 2,                                 //currentQuestionNo  from hidden field
                  slide: function(event, ui) {
                        $("#amount").val(ui.value);
                  }
            });

Make it

$("#slider-range-max").slider({
                  range: "max",
                  min: 1,
                  max: $(input[name='totalQuestions']).value,
                  value: 2,                                
                  slide: function(event, ui) {
                        $("#amount").val(ui.value);
                  }
            });

are you not calling this function at the document.ready (body onload event)?

If not, then this input element will not be available to the slider unless the document is ready to be processed
