Range slider filters in Gridview?


I am working on a project which uses a lot of parametric component data that I need to represent in a grid. To allow filtering of large datasets I want to incorporate column filtering. However, to make things more useable I was wondering how feasible it would be to filter on a number range and ideally use a slider control to do it. The following website shows this principle in action:


Has anyone seen this done in the Yii Gridview and should it be possible to do this? It strikes me that many people would find a feature like this useful in data presentation and filtering user interface.

Many thanks for your help.
