Properties

Property Type Default Description
start number 0 Range starting value (exclusive).
stop number 5 Range stop value (inclusive).
step number 1 Describes how many values each Symbol represents. For example, for a start value of 0, a stop value of 10 and a step of 2, we will end up with 5 Symbols, with each Symbol representing value increments of 2.
fractions number 1 Number of equal subdivisions that can be selected as a rating in each Symbol. For example, for a fractions value of 2, you will be able to select a rating with a precision of down to half a Symbol. Must be >= 1
initialRating number 0 The value that will be used as an initial rating. This is the old initialRate.
placeholderRating number 0 If you do not define an initialRating value, you can use a placeholder rating. Visually, this will have the same result as if you had defined an initialRating value. If initialRating is set placeholderRating is not taken into account. This is the old placeholderRate
