HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <title>HTML iframe src Attribute</title>
</head>
  
<body style="text-align: center">
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
    <h2>HTML iframe src Attribute</h2>
    <iframe src=
            height="200" 
            width="400">
          
    </iframe>
</body>
  
</html>

Output:



The iframe in HTML stands for Inline Frame. The ” iframe ” tag defines a rectangular region within the document in which the browser can display a separate document, including scrollbars and borders. An inline frame is used to embed another document within the current HTML document. The HTML iframe name attribute is used to specify a reference for an <Iframe> element. The name attribute is also used as a reference to the elements in JavaScript. The iframe is basically used to show a webpage inside the current web page. The ‘ src ‘ attribute is used to specify the URL of the document that occupies the iframe.

Syntax : 

<iframe src="URL" title="description"></iframe>

Attributes value: It contains a single value URL that specifies the URL of the document that is embedded in the iframe. There are two types of URL links which are listed below:

  • Absolute URL: It points to another webpage.
  • Relative URL: It points to other files of the same web page.

Below example illustrates the <iframe> src attribute in HTML.

Height and Width: The height and width attributes are used to specify the size of the iframe. The attribute values are specified in pixels by default, but they can also be specified in percentages like ” 80% “.

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<body>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
    <h2>HTML iframe src Attribute</h2>
      
<p>Content goes here</p>
  
    <iframe src=
            height="300" 
            width="400"
    </iframe>
</body>
  
</html>

Output: 



Removing Border: By default, iframe has a border around it. To remove the border, we must use the style attribute and use the CSS border property.

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<body>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
    <h2>HTML iframe src Attribute</h2>
      
<p>Content goes here</p>
  
    <iframe src=
            height="300" 
            width="400" 
            style="border: none"
    </iframe>
</body>
  
</html>

Output:

No border

Border Style: Changing the size, style, and color of the Iframe’s border:

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<body>
      
<p>Content goes here</p>
  
    <iframe src=
            height="300" 
            width="400" 
            style="border: 4px solid orange"
    </iframe>
</body>
  
</html>

Output:

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.

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<body>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
    <h2>HTML iframe src Attribute</h2>
      
<p>Click the link text</p>
  
    <iframe height="300" 
            width="350" 
            src=
            name="iframe_a"
    </iframe>
      
<p> <a href=
           target="iframe_a">
        GeeksforGeeks IDE
        </a
    </p>
  
</body>
  
</html>
