jQuery UI slider - can't slide to 0

jQuery 1.3.2 / jQueryUI 1.7 / Slider

$("#slider").slider({
range: "min",
min: 0,
max: 40,
value: 0,
slide: function(event, ui) {
CalculateOrder(event, ui);
}
});


it starts off just fine, but after I move the slider I can't get it back to 0, ui.Value is 1 when i slide it all the way to the left.

I've tried setting

min:-1


this sets the ui.Value to -1 when i slide it to -1, but when I'm at 0 the ui.Value is still 1.

Any ideas?

Answer

What you want is to get the value when the slider has stop, not during the slide. From my experience, the slide event will get you the previous position of the slider. Stop will give you the value of the slider where the user move it to.

$("#slider").slider({
    range: 'min',
    min: 0,
    max: 40,
    value: 1,
    step: 10,
    slide : function(event, ui){
        console.log("previous value:"+ $(this).slider('option', 'value'));
    },
    stop: function(event, ui){
        console.log("Current value:"+ $(this).slider('option', 'value'));
    }
});
