How to set default value for jQuery UI Slider

Yesterday while for one of my requirement, I need to set default value of the jQuery UI slider. That means when page is loaded there should be a default value for slider. For example, if the range allowed for slider is 0 to 100 and when page loads slider should have 18 as default value.

The jQuery UI slider has option named "value", which can be used to set the value of the slider.

//Code Starts
?$(document).ready(function()
{  
   var iValue = 18;
   $("#lbl").text(iValue); 
   $("#slider").slider(
   {
     min:0,
     max:100,
     value:iValue,
     slide:function(event,ui) 
     {
       $("#lbl").text(ui.value);
     }
  });
});?
//Code Ends

See result below.
