I have to implement a number range slider for a maximum width parameter. For example the lowest slider value is 500 and for the highest I set it to a reasonable value of 3.000.
First the user chooses if he wants to set a value or not. I'm thinking of using a checkbox that enables/disables the slider. If the user didn't want to set a value then the result is there is no maximum width, which is the same as saying the maximum width is infinite.
My question: is there any way to avoid the use of the checkbox? A way could be to set a really high value in the slider (for example 10.000). But this would make the slider hard to use for real values.
