How Do I Remove the Ability to Resize Specific CKEditor Dialog Windows?

This website contains links to software which is either no longer maintained or will be supported only until the end of 2019 (CKFinder 2). For the latest documentation about current CKSource projects, including software like CKEditor 4/CKEditor 5, CKFinder 3, Cloud Services, Letters, Accessibility Checker, please visit the new documentation website.

If you look for an information about very old versions of CKEditor, FCKeditor and CKFinder check also the CKEditor forum, which was closed in 2015. If not, please head to StackOverflow for support.

Since version 3.5 the dialog windows of CKEditor can be resized by using the resizing grip located in the bottom right-hand corner of a dialog window (for RTL languages — in the bottom left-hand corner).

The resizing grip of a CKEditor dialog window

You can disable the resizing feature completely as described here. If, however, you want to leave the resizing feature for some of the dialog windows and turn it off for others, you may define the value of the resizable parameter for each dialog window separately, like in the example below.

CKEDITOR.on( 'dialogDefinition', function( ev )
	if ( == 'link' ) = CKEDITOR.DIALOG_RESIZE_NONE;
	else if ( == 'image' ) = CKEDITOR.DIALOG_RESIZE_HEIGHT;

Use the CKEDITOR.DIALOG_RESIZE_WIDTH and CKEDITOR.DIALOG_RESIZE_HEIGHT values to enable resizing of a dialog window in one dimension only.
