Resize jQuery Dialog

If you ever need to resize and reposition a jQuery dialog, the following script should do the trick:

function setDialogSize($dialogEl, width, height) {
    $dialogEl.dialog("option", "width", width);
    $dialogEl.dialog("option", "height", height);
    $dialogEl.dialog("option", "position", $dialogEl.dialog("option", "position"));

If you change a UI component’s option it should respond by updating immediately to reflect the change. If it doesn’t, it’s a bug. I read that somewhere :)
