I thought that is a nice and useful feature, so I adapted it a little bit and integrated it into the new release of the ApexLib Framework.
Check it out on the ApexLib Feature Demonstration page.
How to use it in your application?
Just add the ApexLib hint $APEXLIB_V_RESIZE$ into the “Comment” property of your Page Item or the “Link Attributes” property of your Tabular Form column.
If you want that all your textareas in your application are resizeable, you can also add a call to
ApexLib_Browser.setTextareaProperty ( pProperty => ApexLib_Browser.VERTICAL_RESIZEABLE );
in your “ApexLib – Before footer” region of page 0.
I have tested this feature with IE 6.0/7.0 and Firefox 2.0, please let me know if it also works with other browsers. Thanks!
