The issue of the jQuery UI resizable handle sticking to its original position after scrolling is a common problem. This happens because the resizable handle's position is calculated relative to the document and not the viewport. When you scroll the page, the handle's position remains fixed in the original document position, making it appear stuck.

To fix this issue, you need to adjust the position of the resizable handle when scrolling occurs. One way to achieve this is by using the scroll event in JavaScript or jQuery to update the handle's position dynamically.

Here's an example of how you can fix the issue using jQuery:

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>jQuery UI Resizable Handle Fix</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href=""> <script src=""></script> <script src=""></script> <style> .resizable-container { width: 300px; height: 300px; overflow: auto; border: 1px solid #ccc; position: relative; } .resizable-content { width: 600px; height: 600px; background-color: #f0f0f0; position: relative; } </style> </head> <body> <div class="resizable-container"> <div class="resizable-content"></div> </div> <script> $(function() { // Initialize the resizable handle $(".resizable-content").resizable(); // Adjust handle position on scroll $(".resizable-container").on("scroll", function() { $(".ui-resizable-handle").css("position", "fixed"); }); }); </script> </body> </html>

In this example, we have a resizable container with a larger content div inside it. The scroll event listener is attached to the container, and when scrolling occurs, we set the position of the resizable handle to "fixed" using the CSS position property. This way, the handle will remain fixed in the viewport while scrolling, ensuring it doesn't get stuck in its original position.

With this fix, the jQuery UI resizable handle should now behave correctly even when the page is scrolled.
