How to resize component with mouse drag in JavaFX


Question

I'm interested how I can resize this component with mouse drag:

VBox stackedTitledPanes = createStackedTitledPanes();

    ScrollPane scroll = makeScrollable(stackedTitledPanes);

    TabPane tabPane = new TabPane();
    BorderPane mainPane = new BorderPane();

    tabPane.setStyle("-fx-font-size: 12pt;"); // Set global size for the font
    // Create Tabs
    Tab tabA = new Tab();
    tabA.setText("Main Component");
    tabA.setStyle("-fx-font-size: 12pt;"); // Set size of the tab name
    // Add something in Tab
    StackPane tabA_stack = new StackPane();
    tabA_stack.setAlignment(Pos.CENTER);
    tabA_stack.getChildren().add(scroll); 
    tabA.setContent(tabA_stack);
    tabPane.getTabs().add(tabA);

    Tab tabB = new Tab();
    tabB.setText("Second Component");
    tabB.setStyle("-fx-font-size: 12pt;"); // Set size of the tab name
    // Add something in Tab
    StackPane tabB_stack = new StackPane();
    tabB_stack.setAlignment(Pos.CENTER);
    tabB_stack.getChildren().add(new Label("Label@Tab B"));
    tabB.setContent(tabB_stack);
    tabPane.getTabs().add(tabB);

    Tab tabC = new Tab();
    tabC.setText("Last Component");
    tabC.setStyle("-fx-font-size: 12pt;"); // Set size of the tab name
    // Add something in Tab
    StackPane tabC_vBox = new StackPane();
    tabC_vBox.setAlignment(Pos.CENTER);
    tabC_vBox.getChildren().add(new Label("Label@Tab C"));
    tabC.setContent(tabC_vBox);
    tabPane.getTabs().add(tabC);

    mainPane.setCenter(tabPane);

    mainPane.setPrefSize(395, 580);
    mainPane.setLayoutX(850);
    mainPane.setLayoutY(32);

    scroll.setPrefSize(395, 580);
    scroll.setLayoutX(850);
    scroll.setLayoutY(32);

    root.getChildren().add(mainPane);

The problem is that I have several components placed on the main stage. When I resize one component for example increase the height of the component I have to reduce the size of the next component without stepping over the component. How I can do this?

I think it is stack pane that is causing the problem, it does not support resize behaviour like VBox or HBox does. I am dragging in my own program to resize TextArea or List components to make them larger if necessary. Check out the code here:

https://bitbucket.org/atill/estimate/src/22390a2ca034b55f1916e46435b714e5c489b90e/src/main/java/projmon/ui/DragResizer.java?at=master

and usage:

EDIT I have pulled EstiMate but the drag resizer is still open source in this gist.

Or the full code.
