Keyboard Support

An end user can use the following keys to interact with the UI component.

Key Action
← / → Decreases/increases the value of the focused handle by a step.
Page Up / Page Down Decreases/increases the value of the focused handle by a keyStep.
Home / End Sets the focused handle to the minimum/maximum value or to the value of the other handle.
Tab / Shift + Tab Switches between the handles.

You can implement a custom handler for a key using the registerKeyHandler(key, handler) method.

jQuery
JavaScript
function registerKeyHandlers () {
    const rangeSlider = $("#rangeSliderContainer").dxRangeSlider("instance");
    rangeSlider.registerKeyHandler("backspace", function(e) {
        // The argument "e" contains information on the event
    });
    rangeSlider.registerKeyHandler("space", function(e) {
        // ...
    });
}

    // Prior to Angular 8
    // @ViewChild(DxRangeSliderComponent) rangeSlider: DxRangeSliderComponent;

    ngAfterViewInit () {
        this.rangeSlider.instance.registerKeyHandler('backspace', function(e) {
            // The argument "e" contains information on the event
