HTML Iframes

HTML Iframes – An HTML iframe is used to display a web page within a web page.

HTML Iframe Syntax

The HTML <iframe> tag specifies an inline frame.

An inline frame is used to embed another document within the current HTML document.


<iframe src="url" title="description">

Tip: It is a good practice to always include a title attribute for the <iframe>. This is used by screen readers to read out what the content of the iframe is.

HTML iframe – Set Height and Width

Use the height and width attributes to specify the size of the iframe.

The height and width are specified in pixels by default:


<iframe src="/learn-html/" height="200" width="300" title="Iframe Example"></iframe>

Or you can add the style attribute and use the CSS height and width properties:


<iframe src="/learn-html/" style="height:200px;width:300px;" title="Iframe Example"></iframe>

HTML iframe – Remove the Border

By default, an iframe has a border around it.

To remove the border, add the style attribute and use the CSS border property:


<iframe src="/learn-html/" style="border:none;" title="Iframe Example"></iframe>

With CSS, you can also change the size, style and color of the iframe’s border:


<iframe src="/learn-html/" style="border:2px solid red;" title="Iframe Example"></iframe>

HTML iframe – Target for a Link

An iframe can be used as the target frame for a link.

The target attribute of the link must refer to the name attribute of the iframe:


<iframe src="/learn-html/" name="iframe_a" title="Iframe Example"></iframe>

<p><a href="" target="iframe_a"></a></p>
