Element height always the same as Width

This is a very useful snippet for ensuring that your element height (div, img etc) is always the same as the width. An example case could be a circular div that you want to ensure maintains a set aspect ratio so that it is not squashed or elongated.

There are a few examples of how to achieve this below, but we find the first the cleanest & most consistent.

// Best – height always same as width
$(window).on("focus load resize scroll",function(){
$('.width-height').each(function() {
$(this).height($(this).width());
});
// height always same as width
var divWidth = $('.width-height').width();
$(window).on("focus load resize scroll",function(){
$('.width-height').css({"height": divWidth, "max-height": divWidth});
});
// height always same as width
var divWidth = $('.width-height').width();
$(window).on("focus load resize scroll",function(){
$('.width-height').height(divWidth);
});

To use the code make sure that the element has a set width value and that the element also has the appropriate class e.g. ‘.width-height’.
