        <input id="demo1" type="text" value="55" name="demo1">
                min: 0,
                max: 100,
                step: 0.1,
                decimals: 2,
                boostat: 5,
                maxboostedstep: 10,
                postfix: '%'
        <form class="form-horizontal" role="form">
            <div class="form-group">
                <label for="demo2" class="col-md-4 control-label">Example:</label> <input id="demo2" type="text" value="0" name="demo2" class="col-md-8 form-control">

                min: -1000000000,
                max: 1000000000,
                stepinterval: 50,
                maxboostedstep: 10000000,
                prefix: '$'
<input id="demo_vertical" type="text" value="" name="demo_vertical">
      verticalbuttons: true
<input id="demo_vertical2" type="text" value="" name="demo_vertical2">
      verticalbuttons: true,
      verticalupclass: 'glyphicon glyphicon-plus',
      verticaldownclass: 'glyphicon glyphicon-minus'
        <input id="demo3" type="text" value="" name="demo3">

The initval setting is only applied when no explicit value is set on the input with the value attribute.

        <input id="demo3_21" type="text" value="" name="demo3_21">
                initval: 40
        <input id="demo3_22" type="text" value="33" name="demo3_22">
                initval: 40

Size of the whole controller can be set with applying input-sm or input-lg class on the input, or by applying the plugin on an input inside an input-group with the proper size class(input-group-sm or input-group-lg).

        <input id="demo4" type="text" value="" name="demo4" class="input-sm">
                postfix: "a button",
                postfix_extraclass: "btn btn-default"
        <div class="input-group input-group-lg">
            <input id="demo4_2" type="text" value="" name="demo4_2" class="form-control input-lg">
                postfix: "a button",
                postfix_extraclass: "btn btn-default"
        <div class="input-group">
            <input id="demo5" type="text" class="form-control" name="demo5" value="50">
            <div class="input-group-btn">
                <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Action</button>
                <button type="button" class="btn btn-default dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">
                    <span class="caret"></span>
                    <span class="sr-only">Toggle Dropdown</span>
                <ul class="dropdown-menu pull-right" role="menu">
                    <li><a href="#">Action</a></li>
                    <li><a href="#">Another action</a></li>
                    <li><a href="#">Something else here</a></li>
                    <li class="divider"></li>
                    <li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>
                prefix: "pre",
                postfix: "post"
            buttondown_class: "btn btn-link",
            buttonup_class: "btn btn-link"
