Expanding Textareas jQuery Plugin
Ever want a textarea to expand based on the size of the input that someone types? I made a jQuery plugin to handle expanding textareas! The basic technique is based off of a cool article called Expanding Text Areas Made Elegant. Check out the Expanding Textareas Demo and play with the Expanding Textareas Source Code.
I think it’s a pretty cool plugin that is a lot nicer than using the standard hacks for keeping textarea heights up to date. And it works really well with proportional widths, custom fonts, and min/max heights!
Here is a screenshot (which also links to the demo):
