jQuery resize event


Version: 1.1, Last updated: 3/14/2010

With jQuery resize event, you can bind resize event handlers to elements other than window, for super-awesome-resizing-greatness!

Note that while this plugin works in jQuery 1.3.2, if an element's event callbacks are manually triggered via .trigger( 'resize' ) or .resize() those callbacks may double-fire, due to limitations in the jQuery 1.3.2 special events system. This is not an issue when using jQuery 1.4+.

Visit the project page for more information and usage examples!




This working example, complete with fully commented code, illustrates a few ways in which this plugin can be used.
