The CSS3-spec is full of wonderful things. Sometimes things that are not so desperately needed as others but anyway… good to have them.
One of these more or less needed properties might be
resize. It is part of the CSS3 Basic User Interface Module. What is really useful with
resize is the ability to restrict the resizing of
textarea for example. But it is possible to resize every element you’d like to as this demo by Simurai shows.
There are four values for
resize that are kinda logical:
none: no resizing at all
horizontal: resizing only horizontal
vertical: resizing only… vertical
both: yeah, well… pretty obvious, right?!
Robert Nyman created this demo using the
resize-property. You should also check out Louis’ article that’s pretty great. And: the MDN docs about
resize. You can also read more about this topic at Stackoverflow.
