    private RichInputRangeSlider rangeSliderBind;

    public void setNumberSliderBind(RichInputNumberSlider numberSliderBind) {
        this.numberSliderBind = numberSliderBind;

    public RichInputNumberSlider getNumberSliderBind() {
        return numberSliderBind;

    public void setRangeSliderBind(RichInputRangeSlider rangeSliderBind) {

  • Now to get value of inputNumberSlider simply use binding.getValue()

 Number numberVal = (Number)numberSliderBind.getValue();
