This pull request includes a refactoring of Resizable's resize handler that fixes 3 reported issues. The fixes build upon one another, so I am including them together in one request. I've included appropriate test cases for each issue, as well.

Resizable now modifies only the CSS properties that are actually necessary to perform the resize (instead of always setting top, left, width, and height regardless; see #7605). This makes the plugin behave more predictably in dynamic layouts.

Furthermore, the plugin's resize event is now altogether more useful:

  • The event is triggered only when the element's size is modified (as opposed to every mousemove; see #5545)
  • The ui callback parameter now correctly reports the element's current size (see #5817)

if (!this._helper && this._proportionallyResizeElements.length)
- this._updateCache(data);
- // calling the user callback at the end
- this._trigger('resize', event, this.ui());
+ // Call the user callback if the element was resized
+ if ( ! $.isEmptyObject(props) ) {

Can you please change this to use a flag inside each fo the conditionals above? $.isEmptyObject() wasn't added until jQuery 1.4, and if we land this change it'll need to go into 1-8-stable as well. Otherwise this will need to wait until 1.10 when we introduce breaking changes.

This should now be ready to go for both master and 1.8-stable.


Hi @eromba, thanks again for contributing this patch. We recently rewrote the test suite for resizable. Can you rebase this please?

I'm closing this pull request since I'll be moving the rebased commits to a new, dedicated branch.
