jQuery Question

jquery ui slider display values

I have a slider with values 1 - 5. it updates a hidden input with the ID of 'days'.

$(function() {
$("#slider").slider({
value: 3,
min: 1,
max: 5,
step: 1,
slide: function(event, ui) {
$("#days").val(ui.value);
}
});
$("#days").val($("#slider").slider("value"));
});​


I want to add labels to the slider

so at position 1 it would say 1 hour, 2 would say 12 hours, 3 would say 1 day, 4 = 3 days and 5 = 1 week.

but i want to keep the value of days as 1 -5

how is this possible?

EDIT

Want to copy this
slider example

Answer

Just arrange your label container (e.g. I added a div) and when you slide, update it.

Live version : http://jsfiddle.net/8ek4a/5/

Code :

$(function() {
   var labelArr = new Array("", "1 hour", "12 hours", "1 day", "3 day", "1 week");
   $( "#slider" ).slider({
       value:3,
       min: 1,
       max: 5,
       step: 1,
       slide: function( event, ui ) {
          $( "#days" ).val( ui.value );
          $("#label").html(labelArr[ui.value]);
       }
   });
   $( "#days" ).val($( "#slider" ).slider( "value" ) );
   $("#label").html(labelArr[$( "#slider" ).slider( "value" )]);
});​

UPDATE: Now I have come up with this solution to implement indicator. see http://jsfiddle.net/8ek4a/6/
