TrackBar.Maximum Property

Gets or sets the upper limit of the range this TrackBar is working with.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public int Maximum { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The maximum value for the TrackBar. The default is 10.

You can use the SetRange method to set both the Maximum and Minimum properties at the same time.

The following code example displays a form containing a TrackBar control and a TextBox control. The example demonstrates setting the Maximum, TickFrequency, LargeChange, and SmallChange properties and handling the Scroll event. The TextBox contents are updated to the Value property value when the Scroll event occurs.

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

public class Form1 : System.Windows.Forms.Form
{
    private System.Windows.Forms.TrackBar trackBar1;
    private System.Windows.Forms.TextBox textBox1;

    [STAThread]
    static void Main() 
    {
        Application.Run(new Form1());
    }

    public Form1()
    {
        this.textBox1 = new System.Windows.Forms.TextBox();
        this.trackBar1 = new System.Windows.Forms.TrackBar();

        // TextBox for TrackBar.Value update. 
        this.textBox1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(240, 16);
        this.textBox1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(48, 20);

        // Set up how the form should be displayed and add the controls to the form. 
        this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(296, 62);
        this.Controls.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.Control[] {this.textBox1,this.trackBar1});
        this.Text = "TrackBar Example";

        // Set up the TrackBar. 
        this.trackBar1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(8, 8);
        this.trackBar1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(224, 45);
        this.trackBar1.Scroll += new System.EventHandler(this.trackBar1_Scroll);

        // The Maximum property sets the value of the track bar when 
        // the slider is all the way to the right.
        trackBar1.Maximum = 30;

        // The TickFrequency property establishes how many positions 
        // are between each tick-mark.
        trackBar1.TickFrequency = 5;

        // The LargeChange property sets how many positions to move 
        // if the bar is clicked on either side of the slider.
        trackBar1.LargeChange = 3;

        // The SmallChange property sets how many positions to move 
        // if the keyboard arrows are used to move the slider.
        trackBar1.SmallChange = 2;
    }


    private void trackBar1_Scroll(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {
        // Display the trackbar value in the text box.
        textBox1.Text = "" + trackBar1.Value;
    }
}
