jquery Age Slider Bar

I'm trying to style this slider bar to match the image I've attached.  I have it working now but not sure how to add the boxes that float above the slider as in the image.

Here is my current code:

Here is the image I need to modify it to function as with the boxes above the slider.

@kozaiwaniec thanks that's exactly what I was looking for.  I'll work with styling it on my own.  I'll take a look at the code you've added and see if I can decipher how it's working for future reference.  Thanks again for the help.

hi guys,

Sorry, I didn't have time to explain earlier.

so basically, I've created two elements with jquery which will contain the values of the left and right of the slider. I gave them class names so they can be styled in CSS outside of the javascript. I could have used one element and one class name, but I left them both in so you can tweak the positions to be centered over the handles individually.

They are then dynamically inserted into each slider handle ( using eq(0) for the first handle, and eq(1) for the second handle - eq is the index of the element in the jquery array of elements). Within the slider options object, I set the text of each new element to the slider values.

One additional piece in the CSS adds the word AGE inside each item - this way AGE will not be replaced by the text of the value. You could have some nested elements with the word AGE, but this is simpler. The only downside would be if you needed to dynamically localize your page, and then it would kind of suck.

Anyway, that's kind of it in a nutshell. if you need/desire further explanation please let me know.

Koza.
