The FloatInput widget allows selecting a floating point value using a spinbox. It behaves like a slider except that lower and upper bounds are optional and a specific value can be entered. Value can be changed using keyboard (up, down, page up, page down), mouse wheel and arrow buttons.

For more information about listening to widget events and laying out widgets refer to the widgets user guide. Alternatively you can learn how to build GUIs by declaring parameters independently of any specific widgets in the param user guide. To express interactivity entirely using Javascript without the need for a Python server take a look at the links user guide.

Parameters:

For layout and styling related parameters see the customization user guide.
