Using the jQuery BetterGrow Plugin , I created a BetterGrow APEX Plugin. The APEX part is just a simple wrapper of the jQuery Plugin - so all the credits go to " The Product Guy " who came up with that one. It just does this: You can see it in action on the demo site . And download it from apex-plugin.com . There already was an similar plugin, created by Martin . On the demo page you can see both, so pick the one you like most!
