Getting Started:

To use the slider component, first the sparkle component name-space has to be added in your page.

 The second step is to apply yui3-skin-name on the parent element of slider component.

<h:form styleClass="yui3-skin-name">

<h:form styleClass="yui-skin-name yui3-skin-name">

 Now you ready to use slider component, here is the basic example:

<ann:slider />

<html  xmlns:ann=""
  <h:form styleClass="yui3-skin-name">
     <ann:slider />
