Today, I am glad to announce a new version of the Autogrow Textarea plugin. There were quite a few people that submitted feedback and I tried to take all that into consideration. Your comments are still welcome.
The plugin can be tried on this textarea:
It may not be apparent, but there are a quite a few things that have changed with this new version. Here’s the list:
- 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.
There you go. Enjoy! And do leave your feedback, please.
A lot of people have been emailing/commenting asking about Autogrow Textarea’s licensing. I finally decided I to go with this one : Beerware License.
