for some reason my jquery resizable element doesn't show a handle (or handles)
is an image required? or a specific stylesheet? or?
note that the resize works fine - just doesn't display any indication that this element is resizable.

thanks

What is the code to change the cursor?

If it's the jQuery UI have you included the theme's images.

When you come to page with a resizable element - typically there is an indication that this element is resizable.
It seems that a series of 'lines' displayed in the lower right corner is very common - and the user then knows to put their cursor over that spot to resize.
My question was - how do i put this handle or lines as described above?

So are you saying that the handle I refer to is in the jquery ui images?
It's possible that I don't have all the files included  as I'm wanting to include only whats needed for resizing.

So which files are absolutely needed?

thanks

The jQuery UI comes with a sprite image that contains all the necessary images for the UI elements - that should be referenced in the css file.

the thing is it isn't - I looked there - there are no image references ...
is there a separate css file for the resizable ui - or is there a resizable ui?
i downloaded a custom build with only draggable and resizable so ???

thanks

It must have come with the css, js and image files in a zip unless you just download the js file?

When you downloaded it from here, you would have got a zip with the css, js and images in it.

That is where I downloaded from.
I selected all in UI Core and Interactions.
I did find the proper files after looking again!
The issue was that I absolutely did not want to include all files downloaded - there are 178 files in 26 folders!
I just couldn't find the exact 2 or 3 that I needed ...

Thanks
