The RangeInput widget is a customized range slider control widget based on HTML5 range input. The widget enhances the default HTML range input with various features including the following:

  • Specially styled for Bootstrap 3.x and Bootstrap 4.x with customizable caption showing the output of the control.
  • Ability to prepend and append addons (very useful to show the min and max ranges, and the slider measurement unit).
  • Allow the input to be changed both via the control or the text box.
  • Automatically degrade to normal text input for unsupported Internet Explorer versions.

NOTE: This extension is a sub repo split of yii2-widgets. The split has been done since 08-Nov-2014 to allow developers to install this specific widget in isolation if needed. One can also use the extension the previous way with the whole suite of yii2-widgets.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer. Check the composer.json for this extension's requirements and dependencies. Read this web tip /wiki on setting the minimum-stability settings for your application's composer.json.
