Controlling Resizable Text Fields in Safari

Thursday, June 21, 2007 at 12:02 am | Comments off

As many of you likely know, Safari 3 supports resizing text fields. This is great and a welcome improvement to anyone who has suffered with a text field that just isn't big enough. One tip though: you can use max-width, min-width, max-height and min-height to control the maximum / minimum dimensions that Safari will resize the text field to. Useful if resizing a text field too large is breaking your layout.

By the way, Cameron Adams wrote a bookmarklet a while ago that you can use to add this functionality to other browsers.

There are some cases that browser 'problems' are not your problem. One of them, is this: if a nut resizes the textfield, it's his problem!
Nonetheless, this might be useful when an even so stupid client (who browses with Safari) comes up with this 'problem'.
