Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• Slider[...] displays in a notebook as a horizontal slider that can be manipulated interactively.

• Slider[x] represents a slider running from left to right.
• Slider[x, {xmax, xmin}] with > represents a slider running from right to left. »
• If the value of the slider is outside the range given, it will be displayed at one of the ends.
