Prop Type Default Description
width number - The width of the resizable.
height number - The height of the resizable.
left number - The left position of the resizable.
top number - The top position of the resizable.
rotationDeg? number 0 The rotation of the resizable in degrees.
scale? number 1 The drag and resize scale. This value scales the mouse movement.
color? string - The widget color.
draggable? boolean true Enable/Disable the drag event. This also disables the drag handler.
dragHandler? boolean false Enable/Disable the drag handler.
dragHandlerDeg? number 180 The position of the drag handler measured in degrees relative to the resizable box vertical axis if relativeHandlers is true, or measured from the parent container vertical axis if relativeHandlers is false.
resizable? boolean true Enable/Disable the resize handlers.
aspectRatio? boolean | number false Boolean: Lock/Unlock aspect ratio. Number: Lock aspect ratio with the provided aspect ratio.
rotatable? boolean true Enable/Disable the rotate handler.
snapAngle? boolean | number 45 Boolean: Disables angle snap on rotation. Number: Sets the snap angle while rotating and holding shift key.
rotateHandlerDeg? number 0 The position of the drag handler measured in degrees relative to the resizable box vertical axis if relativeHandlers is true, or measured from the parent container vertical axis if relativeHandlers is false.
minWidth? number 10 Minimun resizable width.
minHeight? number 10 Minimum resizable height.
handlersOffset? number 20 The space between the resizable box and the rotate and drag handlers.
handlersSpaceOut? number 50 The minimum width/height where the handlers start spacing out.
relativeHandlers? boolean true if true, dragHandlerDeg and rotateHandlerDeg will be measured relative to the resizable box, else, they will be measured from the parent container.
onDragStart? OnDragStartHandler - Executed just before the first onDrag.
onDrag? OnDragHandler - Executed when dragging.
onDragEnd? OnDragEndHandler - Executed after the last onDrag event.
onResizeStart? OnResizeStartHandler - Executed just before the first onResize.
onResize? OnResizeHandler - Executed when resizing.
onResizeEnd? OnResizeEndHandler - Executed after the last onResize event.
onRotateStart? OnRotateStartHandler - Executed just before the first onRotate.
onRotate? OnRotateHandler - Executed when rotating.
onRotateEnd? OnRotateEndHandler - Executed after the last onRotate event.

Event Handlers

All event handlers except the On<event>StartHandler handlers will create an event that can have the following properties:

Property Description
style The left, top, or width and height properties that can be applied to an object. Useful in most cases.
delta The current event change of the left, top, or width and height properties.
totalDelta The total change of the left, top, or width and height properties since the "start" event.

The types used in each property are the following:

Type Definition
StylePos { left: number; top: number }
StyleSize { width: number; height: number }
StyleRot { rotationDeg: number }
DeltaPos { x: number; y: number }
DeltaSize { w: number; h: number }
DeltaRot { deg: number }
Handler Event
OnDragStartHandler -
OnDragHandler { style: StylePos; delta: DeltaPos; totalDelta: DeltaPos }
OnDragEndHandler { style: StylePos; totalDelta: DeltaPos }
OnResizeStartHandler -
OnResizeHandler { style: StylePos & StyleSize; delta: DeltaPos & DeltaSize; totalDelta: DeltaPos & DeltaSize }
OnResizeEndHandler { style: StylePos & StyleSize; totalDelta: DeltaPos & DeltaSize }
OnRotateStartHandler -
OnRotateHandler { style: StyleRot; delta: DeltaRot; totalDelta: DeltaRot }
OnRotateEndHandler { style: StyleRot; totalDelta: DeltaRot }
