resize event handling

Recommended Posts

Although the documentation ( http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/event_onresize.asp ) states:

onresize is Supported by the Following HTML Tags:
<a>, <address>, <b>, <big>, <blockquote>, <body>, <button>, <cite>, <code>, <dd>, <dfn>, <div>, <dl>, <dt>, <em>, <fieldset>, <form>, <frame>, <h1> to <h6>, <hr>, <i>, <img>, <input>, <kbd>, <label>, <legend>, <li>, <object>, <ol>, <p>, <pre>, <samp>, <select>, <small>, <span>, <strong>, <sub>, <sup>, <table>, <textarea>, <tt>, <ul>, <var>


I can not get a situation where resizing a div causes the oresize handler to be executed.

It looks like onresize only works on the window object and the body tag.


Among other things, i tried this, a simple mod to the example code:

<!DOCTYPE html><html><head><script>function myFunction(){var w=window.outerWidth;var h=window.outerHeight;var txt="Window size: width=" + w + ", height=" + h;document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML=txt;}</script></head><body><div style="width:100%" onresize="myFunction()" ><p>Try to resize the browser window.</p><p id="demo"> </p><p>Note: this example will not work properly in IE8 and earlier. IE8 and earlier do not support the outerWidth/outerHeight propery of the window object.</p></div</body></html>

I would like to see a working example where the onresize event handler as attribute of a div tag is actually executed, or, if it is indeed not possible, to get the documentation updated according to the actual possibilities.

This seems to be an error in the documentation. According to MDN, on the window object supports the onresize event.
