Detect Element Size On Window Resize - jQuery sizespy

A jQuery based size spy plugin that displays a size monitor inside your element, showing the current height/width of the element when the window is resized.

How to use it:

1. Load the JavaScript jquery.sizespy.js after jQuery library (slim build).

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/dist/jquery.sizespy.js"></script>

2. Call the function sizeSpy to create a size monitor box within your element.

<div class="boxes">
  <h2>Header Box</h2>
  <div class="item">
$(function() {
    spanTarget: '.boxes'

3. Customize the styles of the size monitor box.

$(function() {
    spanTarget: '.boxes',
    cssPrefix: 'sizespy',
    spanStyles: {
      "position": "absolute",
      "left": "0",
      "top": "0",
      "background-color": "red",
      "color": "white",
      "padding": "3px 6px",
      "font-family": "sans-serif",
      "font-weight": "bold",
      "z-index": "99999"
    containerStyles: {
      "outline": "1px dashed red"
    targetStyles: {
      "position": "relative"
