jQuery Knob supports touch, mouse and mousewheel. It is keyboard events implemented and overloads an input element.

jQuery Knob uses jQuery to run its script. To use jQuery Knob in your web application, first include jQuery CDN before you include jQuery Knob script. Download jQuery Knob from the GitHub. or Alternatively you can also directly load script file from CDNJS.

<script src=""></script>

And then include this tags

<input type="text" value="75" class="dial">
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {

You can pass additional options as attributes data-option like this:

I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before. It’s appropriate time to make a few plans for the long run and it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I want to recommend you few attention-grabbing things or tips. Maybe you could write subsequent articles referring to this article. I desire to read even more things about it! Ahaa, its good discussion on the topic of this paragraph at this place at this web site, I have read all that, so at this time me also commenting at this place.
