I am attempting to resize a draggable DOM. As in the user can select an edge of the DOM and drag it to a new size.


Is this something that GSAP is designed to handle or am I on the wrong track? jQueryUI 'resizable' doesn't really work with a draggable (or I haven't yet been able to get it to work).

You're right, the resizing you describe is not a built-in functionality provided by GSAP Draggable.


If you take a look at

See the Pen qLAwj by jamiejefferson (@jamiejefferson) on CodePen

, you can see a method that gets GSAP Draggable and jQueryUI Resizable working together. The trick is in this line, that prevents the resize and drag from happening at the same time:

$('.ui-resizable-handle').attr('data-clickable', true);
