HTML Iframe

    Using the <iframe> element we can add a new HTML document in the existing one.  The <iframe> element create a rectangular region with its own borders and scrollbar that can show a separate web page.

    <iframe> syntax

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

    Example

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    
       <head>
          <title>HTML Iframes</title>
       </head>
    	
       <body>      
       <iframe src ="https://www.techgeekbuzz.com/">         
      
        <!-- this message will be shown if the browser does not support iframe -->    
         Browser does not support <iframe>
      </iframe>
       </body>
    	
    </html>

    Output

    <iframe> has its own attribute for setting height and width, unlike most of the other elements we do not need to use the styling on <iframe> tag for setting its resolution. Example

    <iframe src ="https://www.techgeekbuzz.com/" height="200" width="300">
    
    Does not support
    
    </iframe>

    Output

    By default height and width attribute accept values in pixels (px). <Note> CSS style attribute can also be used to set the width and height of the iframe.

    <iframe> Target a Link

    Using a target attribute of <a> tag we can set a src URL value for a <iframe> element. The target value of <a> tag must be corelate with the name attribute of <iframe>

    Example:

    <!DOCTYPE html>

    </head>
    <body>
    <iframe src="https://www.techgeekbuzz.com/" name="techgeekbuzz">
