  • Just wanted to understand the context.. why do you want to provide a draggable option to the user? – Deekshit-CUA Oct 20 '16 at 13:20
  • Because our application uses text areas and it's been used in tablet devices and also desktops where we need to expand the textarea when needed manually (specifically not automatically. That's a requirement actually) – Janindu Nov 11 '16 at 4:17
  • I think @Deekshit-CUA was asking for the rationale behind the requirement. (UX Designers don't usually like the answer, "Because it's a requirement.") – Ken Mohnkern Nov 19 '16 at 14:35

A dynamic text input field might be best.

Take a look here: https://api.jquerymobile.com/textinput/

The methods and options associated with the text input in the above link allow you to auto-resize boxes when their display length is reached, includes an easy to use clear button within the input itself (cuts down on extra buttons on the front-end) and also an option to have a "mini" version.

Check it out, it's specifically designed for mobile devices.
