Autogrow Textarea Plugin Version 2.0

Autogrow Textarea Plugin Version 2.0

Today, I am glad to announce a new version of the Autogrow Textarea plugin. It automatically resizes your textarea; before you had an algorithm that calculated the correct width according to your font-size and cols settings. Now, the plugin does it automatically. Big time saver.

It automatically sets the correct CSS attributes; before the user had to enter this manually in the CSS file. Now it’s done by the plugin.The plugin is fired when the page loads; a lot of users requested this feature. When you load a page with data already entered in the textarea, the latter will automatically resize itself.The plugin fires on more events; the plugin used to be fired when the user was typing. Now it does more than that.It no more pollutes the global namespace; if you’re not familiar with these terms, let’s just say the code will not conflict with other Javascripts.
