This is very likely not possible, the quantity field won't be able to read the result of the calculator after loading.

It may be possible.

This is not a solution and I don't know for sure if I can get all the way there. The code is not bi-directional. In other words changing the quantity does not update the slider. I need more info on how you intend to use this potential code.

Is there only going to be one product with the slider?

Thank you for the responses - Sorry I missed them until now!  

To answer @creedon, I would like to have the slider on two different products. 

I actually have a solution working right now with JSON but only on Desktops and Tablets - it does not work on mobile.  Calconic offered these two options as solutions:

Basically, the desktop/tablet website breakpoint and the mobile website breakpoint use separate quantity input fields by the same name. Value output apparently prioritizes the desktop/tablet website breakpoint quantity field.

You would need to either
a) use multi-output JSON and output the same value to both quantity fields, but both fields should have different names.

b) use the same quantity field for both website breakpoints.

Is there a way to 'override' the Quantity input name reference with unique names that can be referenced by the JSON?

Thanks for all the input
