Suggestion for improving Input Range step Property


Recommended Posts


I have a suggestion for improving the Input Range step Property, here: https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/prop_range_step.asp

I found that the Try It Yourself code lacks context as it doesn't show a value, min or max attribute in the input element so the step attribute doesn't have much meaning.

Here is my suggestion for improving the code. You may want to remove the Try it button seeing as the innerHTML is being updated each time the slider changes:


<!DOCTYPE html>

Points: 1 <input type="range" id="myRange" value="5" step="1" min="1" max="10"> 10

<p>Click the button to display the value and the step attribute of the slider control.</p>

<button onclick="myFunction()">Try it</button>

<p><strong>Note:</strong> input elements with type="range" are not supported in IE 9 and earlier versions.</p>

<p id="demo"></p>

function myFunction() {
  var step = document.getElementById("myRange").step;
  var value = document.getElementById("myRange").value;
  document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = 'step:' + step + ', value:' + value;

document.getElementById("myRange").addEventListener('input', function(e) {
