<script src="{{mydomain}}/elastic-text.js"></script>
    new ElasticText({node: document.getElementById('txt-expand')});

##CONFIG * node: {HTMLDOMElement} : DOM Element to attach to :: Required * vert: {Boolean} : Expand vertically :: Optional (default: true) * horz: {Boolean} : Expand horizonally :: Optional (default: false) * height: {Integer} : Beginning static height :: Optional * maxHeight: {Integer} : Maximum height of node :: Optional * minHeight: {Integer} : Minimum height of node :: Optional * maxWidth: {Integer} : Maximum width of node :: Optional * minWidth: {Integer} : Minimum width of node :: Optional * width: {Integer} : Beginning static width :: Optional * resize: {Boolean} : CSS Resize :: Optional (default: false) * overflow: {String} : CSS Overflow :: Optional (default: hidden)

NOTE: most of these values should be set with CSS

#EVENTS The current DOM Events are attached are: * Paste * Cut * KeyUp * Keydown * Keypress

#OTHER GOODIES If you want to play with the character width and the width/character position in which the area expands I highly suggest using CSS to acheieve this effect.

##EXAMPLE

textarea {
    width: 300px;
    padding: 4px; /* illusion of about 2 characters from 'end' for default font sets */
}
