Hi,

I'm not sure if this applies to your use case but when I was building 
our faceted search (see http://www.mysecondhome.co.uk/search.html) at 
first I wanted to do the same, retrieve the minimum and maximum values 
but when I did the few values that were a lot higher than the others 
made it almost impossible to select a reasonable range. That's why I 
switched to a fixed range of reasonable values with the last option 
being "anything higher". This way the resultset is spread out pretty 
evenly over the length of the slider. If the values over which you want 
to do range selection don't vary a lot I think this is the best option, 
otherwise I guess you'll have to use another solution. Maybe if the 
values do change a lot but not very often you could generate new fixed 
range values after updating Solr. If you think something like what I've 
made is useful to you, I'll be happy to answer any questions about how I 
implemented this.

Regards,

gwk
