JqueryUI - Resizable


Advertisements


jQueryUI provides resizable() method to resize any DOM element. This method simplifies the resizing of element which otherwise takes time and lot of coding in HTML. The resizable () method displays an icon in the bottom right of the item to resize.

Syntax

The resizable() method can be used in two forms −

$ (selector, context).resizable (options) Method

The resizable (options) method declares that an HTML element can be resized. The options parameter is an object that specifies the behavior of the elements involved when resizing.

Syntax

$(selector, context).resizable (options);

You can provide one or more options at a time of using Javascript object. If there are more than one options to be provided then you will separate them using a comma as follows −

$(selector, context).resizable({option1: value1, option2: value2..... });

The following table lists the different options that can be used with this method −

Sr.No. Option & Description
1 alsoResize

This option is of type Selector, jQuery , or any DOM Element. It represents elements that also resize when resizing the original object. By default its value is false.

Option - alsoResize

This option can be of type Selector, jQuery , or any DOM Element. It represents elements that also resize when resizing the original object. By default its value is false.

This can be of type −

  • Selector − This type indicates DOM elements to be selected from a DOM document for resizing.

  • jQuery − A callback function will be called for each resizable element on page. This function should return true if the element is resized.

  • Element − An element in the Document Object Model (DOM).

Syntax

$( ".selector" ).resizable({ alsoResize: "#identifier" });
2 animate

This option when set to true is used to enable a visual effect during resizing when the mouse button is released. The default value is false (no effect).

Option - animate

This option when set to true is used to enable a visual effect during resizing when the mouse button is released. The default value is false (no effect).

Syntax

This option is used to set the duration (in milliseconds) of the resizing effect. This option is used only when animate option is true. By default its value is "slow".

Option - animateDuration

This option is used to set the duration (in milliseconds) of the resizing effect. This option is used only when animate option is true. By default its value is "slow".

This can be of type −

  • Number − This specifies duration in milliseconds

  • String − This sepcifies named duration, such as "slow" or "fast".

Syntax

$( ".selector" ).resizable({ animateDuration: "fast" });
4 animateEasing

This option is used to specify which easing to apply when using the animate option. By default its value is "swing".

Option - animateEasing

Easing functions specify the speed at which an animation progresses at different points within the animation.

Syntax

$( ".selector" ).resizable({ animateEasing: "easeOutBounce" });
5 aspectRatio

This option is used to indicate whether to keep the aspect (height and width) ratio for the item. By default its value is false.

Option - aspectRatio

This can be of type −

  • Boolean − This value if set to true, the element will maintain its original aspect ratio.

  • Number − This specifies the element to maintain a specific aspect ratio during resizing.

Syntax

$( ".selector" ).resizable({ aspectRatio: true });

         </h3>
      </div>
      <div id = "resizable-11" class = "square ui-widget-content">
         <h3 class = "ui-widget-header">
            Snap me to the grid of [50,20]
         </h3>
      </div>
   </body>
</html>

Let us save the above code in an HTML file resizeexample.htm and open it in a standard browser which supports javascript, you should see the following output. Now, you can play with the result −

Drag the square border to resize, the first square box resizes with the aspect ratio of 10 / 3 and the second one resizes with grid of [50,20].

$ (selector, context).resizable ("action", params) Method

The resizable ("action", params) method can perform an action on resizable elements, such as allowing or preventing resizing functionality. The action is specified as a string in the first argument (e.g., "disable" to prevent the resize). Check out the actions that can be passed, in the following table.

Syntax

$(selector, context).resizable ("action", params);;

The following table lists the different actions that can be used with this method −

Example

Now let us see an example using the actions from the above table. The following example demonstrates the use of destroy() and disable() methods.

            $( "#resizable-13" ).resizable();
            $( "#resizable-13" ).resizable('destroy');

Let us save the above code in an HTML file resizeexample.htm and open it in a standard browser which supports javascript, you should see the following output −

You cannot resize the first square box as its disabled and the second square box is destroyed.

Event Management on resizable elements

In addition to the resizable (options) method which we saw in the previous sections, JqueryUI provides event methods which gets triggered for a particular event. These event methods are listed below −

Sr.No. Event Method & Description
1 create(event, ui)

This event is triggered when the resizable element is created.

Event - create(event, ui)

This event is triggered when the resizable element is created. Where event is of type Event, and ui is of type Object.

Syntax

$( ".selector" ).resizable({
create: function( event, ui ) {}
});
2 resize(event, ui)

This event is triggered when the handler of resizable element is dragged.

Event - resize(event, ui)

This event is triggered when the handler of resizable element is dragged. Where event is of type Event, and ui is of type Object. Possible values of ui are −

  • element − A jQuery object representing the resizable element.

  • helper − A jQuery object representing the helper that is being resized.

  • originalElement − The jQuery object representing the original element before it is wrapped.

  • originalPosition − The position represented as {left, top } before the resizable is resized.

  • originalSize − The size represented as { width, height } before the resizable is resized.

  • position − The current position represented as {left, top }.

  • size − The current size represented as { width, height }.

Syntax

$( ".selector" ).resizable({
resize: function( event, ui ) {}
});
3 start(event, ui)

});
4 stop(event, ui)

This event is triggered at the end of a resize operation.

      </style>
      
      <!-- Javascript -->

                     ", left = " + ui.position.left +
                     ", width = " + ui.size.width +

      <span id = "resizable-15"></span><br>
      <span id = "resizable-16"></span>
   </body>
</html>

Let us save the above code in an HTML file resizeexample.htm and open it in a standard browser which supports javascript, should must see the following output −
