Resizable: Resizing horizontally with helper causes a vertical resize to occur in IE7 / 8

Reported by: Bluff Owned by:

Component: ui.resizable Version: 1.8.11

With reference to the demo here:

Consider the rightmost red box. If I grab its right-hand

side and pull it to the right, then the box becomes wider (as

expected), but the box also becomes slightly taller (which,

of course, is not expected).

This occurs in IE 8 on Windows 7.

Detailed information about software versions:

IE 8.0.7600.16385

Windows 7 Home Premium, Version 6.1 (Build 7600)

Just in case the demo on jsFiddle doesn't work properly,

here is a page that should work:


    <meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

    <title>height of box also changed</title>

    <link type="text/css"

    <style type="text/css">
      .helper {
	border-style: dashed;
	border-width: thick;

      .c1 {
	float: left;
	margin: 1em;
	width: 200px;
	height: 200px;
	background-color: red;

    <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.5.2.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript"
    <div class=c1></div>
    <div class=c1></div>

    <script type="text/javascript">
	    helper: 'helper'

summary: resizing horizontally causes vertical resize to occur also (in IE 8, with a special helper)Resizable: Resizing horizontally with helper causes a vertical resize to occur in IE7 / 8

Verified this is still an issue in 1.9.1 and cleaned up the test case - Also confirmed that this issue occurs in IE7 and IE8 but does not occur in IE9.
