How to create Price Range Slider in jQuery & PHP with MySQL

[wpdm_file id=56]DEMO

Database Details:

database name => phpgang
table name => like

Database file run in your MySQL to create database and add data in table.

-- Table structure for table `products`

CREATE TABLE `products` (
  `product` text NOT NULL,
  `price` float(5,2) NOT NULL,
  `status` int(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1',
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)

-- Dumping data for table `products`

INSERT INTO `products` VALUES (1, 'Product # 1', 70.54, '2014-01-06 03:20:23', 1);
INSERT INTO `products` VALUES (2, 'Product # 2', 300.00, '2014-01-06 03:20:23', 1);
INSERT INTO `products` VALUES (3, 'Product # 3', 805.88, '2014-01-06 03:20:42', 1);


Edit this file as per your database credentials, I used MySQLi as you know MySQL is deprecated in latest version and will be removed. I suggest all developers to user MySQLi in your PHP applications instead of MySQL.

define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');
define('DB_USERNAME', 'username');
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password');
define('DB_DATABASE', 'database');
$connection = mysqli_connect(DB_SERVER,DB_USERNAME,DB_PASSWORD,DB_DATABASE);


Contains HTML and PHP code to select records from database and show the products those come in the rang of given price.

    $values = str_replace(' ','',$_POST['amount']);
    $values = str_replace('$','',$values);
    $values = explode('-',$values);
    $min = $values[0];
    $max = $values[1];
    $res = mysqli_query($connection,'select `id`,`product`,`price`, DATE_FORMAT(`date`,"%D %b-%Y") as `date` from products where `price` BETWEEN "'.$min.'" AND "'.$max.'"');
    $count  =   mysqli_num_rows($res);
    if($count > 0)
            $id         = $row['id'];
            $product    = $row['product'];
            $price      = $row['price'];
            $date       = $row['date'];

            $HTML .= '<div>';
            $HTML .= 'Product ID: '.$id;
            $HTML .= '<br />Product Name: '.$product;
            $HTML .= '<br />Price: <strong>$'.$price.'</strong> Posted on: '.$date;
            $HTML .= '</div><br /><hr />';
        $HTML='No Data Found';
    $min = 30;
    $max = 700;
    $HTML='Search Products in range.';

<form action="" method="post" id="products">
<div style="margin-left:20px">
    <label for="amount">Price range:</label>
    <input type="text" id="amount" name="amount" style="border:0; color:#f6931f; font-weight:bold;" readonly>
    <div id="slider-range" style="width:80%;"></div>
    <input type="submit" value=" Show products " />
    <?php echo $HTML; ?>


In above code there is a range limit given min: 0max: 1000, minimum is 0 and maximum is 1000 you can edit it as per your requirement and also can make it dynamic like in database you have product with min price and product with max price both are on your websites requirement. values: [ <?php echo $min; ?>, <?php echo $max; ?> ] this jQuery line used to show current selected rage and in this tutorial i have selected 30 to 700 and you can chose your own.

In PHP code i used to get products from database in selected rage in demo I added 3 dummy products with different values.

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.8.0.min.js"></script> 
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.3/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css" />
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.3/jquery-ui.js"></script>

jQuery UI library and jQuery library required to perform Slider navigation.

All files attached in download and provide a demo to view test it.

    Useful and great tutorial..

  2. Arpit says:

    to make slider dynamic do we need to execute one more sql query
    For eg: select `price` from product order by desc limit 1 and echo the result for min value
    OR there is any other simpler way ??

    • huzoorbux says:

      Its upto you if you want to get price range from database as if you select max rage $1000 and you have recent product in database added is about $1200 then no one can be able to get that product in price range.
