I'm aware that the VimResized event happens the main vim window is resized. Is there any event that happens when a split subwindow is resized? I'm looking for something like WinResized.

I'd like to define an autocmd that gets triggered when I move the boundary between split subwindows within the larger vim window.

It exists since Vim 9.0.0917

Patch 9.0.0917
Problem:    The WinScrolled autocommand event is not enough.
Solution:   Add WinResized and provide information about what changed.
            (closes #11576)

:h WinResized

  • Great, thanks! Looks like neovim has adopted WinResized as well.
