Resizable JSF Components

PrimeFaces features a resizable component that has the ability to make a JSF component resizable.
Resizable can be used on various components like resize an input fields, panels, menus, images and more.

To make a component resizable, just add p:resizable as a child;

<h:graphicImage id="img" value="/ui/barca/campnou.jpg">
<p:resizable  />

That’s it now an image can be resized by the user if he/she wants to see more detail:) Another common use case is the input fields,
if users need more space for a textarea, make it resizable by;

<h:inputTextarea id="area" value="Resize me if you need more space">
<p:resizable />


Other than plain resize handling, animations and effects are also supported.

<h:inputTextarea id="area" value="Resize me!!!">
<p:resizable proxy="true" animate="true" effect="bounceOut"/> 

Online Demo

The examples I’ve given here can be reached live at the online demo.

    In the current release (0.8.0) this component is not included.
    You have to download the 0.8.1-SNAPSHOT in order to get this component.
