I am a noob learning Wicket/Jquery. I am attempting to access JavaScript (Jquery) variables from Wicket. Here's a good example I am dealing with:

        Component slider = new WebMarkupContainer("slider").add(new SliderBehavior(
            new SliderOptions().changeEvent("alert('clicked!')").orientation(Orientation.HORIZONTAL).min(10).max(100).value(20)));

I am applying here a jqwicket slider example. Rather than the "alert('clicked!')" event I must read the need for the slider towards the java. All help appreciated!!!

you need to mix jquery's "changeEvent" using the ajax request delivering current slider value for your wicket component.

jqwicket consists of example for carrying this out. to learn more see AjaxSlider here:
