Sliders enable the selection of a single value, or a range of values, by manipulating handles along a linear scale.
A label must appear preceding every slider. Values depicted in the label do not update as the slider is manipulated, to remain consistent with all other component labels.
Sliders default to a horizontal orientation to leverage the landscape orientation of most screens.
The current value is persistent and updates as the user interacts with a handle:
The current value is also displayed as a tooltip above a handle while it's being manipulated.
When the slider has two handles, they are unable to pass one another or move close enough to equal the same value.
The default step value = 1 for a slider. This causes its handle to move smoothly along the linear scale by stepping one value at a time.
Sliders may also be vertically oriented:
Title case, 2-3 words maximum.
Do not combine actions in a label (exception: "Customize & Buy").
If standard labels don't fit the button's purpose, align label with the task the user is attempting.
