Bayes uniform prior for direct effect PreviousNext

I'd like to compare an informative prior for a regression path (X predicts Y) with a uniform prior in which the distribution indicates that every value between -1 and 1 is equally likely a priori. Is there a way to model a uniform prior for a regression path with Bayes? I know it is possible with a correlation but would prefer to model a directional effect given the temporal ordering of my variables within the methodological protocol.

Thanks in advance.

Mplus does not yet offer uniform priors for regression coefficients.
