Initial Slider Value


#1

Is there any way to set the initial value of a slider?

Yep! You can use the value= attribute when you write an html literal, or specify value: if you’re using Jeremy’s inputs notebook. Here are examples of each: https://beta.observablehq.com/d/4f83459b7f9460b5

There’s also the DOM.range helper - but we’re deprecating that helper because it’s not much quicker than writing a html literal and makes small tweaks and additions (like adding more HTML attributes like this one) less obvious.
