html – Remove border from IFrame

The Question :

745 people think this question is useful

How would I remove the border from an iframe embedded in my web app? An example of the iframe is:

<iframe src="myURL" width="300" height="300">Browser not compatible.</iframe>

I would like the transition from the content on my page to the contents of the iframe to be seamless, assuming the background colors are consistent. The target browser is IE6 only and unfortunately solutions for others will not help.

The Question Comments :
  • You can do that easily by using an iframe generator
  • Just create a class like “.nb {border:none;}” inside the <style> tag. Then add the “class=”nb”” inside the <iframe> tag.

Add the frameBorder attribute (note the capital ‘B’).

So it would look like:

<iframe src="myURL" width="300" height="300" frameBorder="0">Browser not compatible.</iframe>

After going mad trying to remove the border in IE7, I found that the frameBorder attribute is case sensitive.

You have to set the frameBorder attribute with a capital B.

<iframe frameBorder="0"></iframe>

As per iframe documentation, frameBorder is deprecated and using the “border” CSS attribute is preferred:

<iframe src="test.html" style="width: 100%; height: 400px; border: 0"></iframe>

  • Note CSS border property does not achieve the desired results in IE6, 7 or 8.

In addition to adding the frameBorder attribute you might want to consider setting the scrolling attribute to “no” to prevent scrollbars from appearing.

<iframe src="myURL" width="300" height="300" frameBorder="0" scrolling="no">Browser not compatible. </iframe >

For browser specific issues also add frameborder="0" hspace="0" vspace="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" according to Dreamweaver:

<iframe src="test.html" name="banner" width="300" marginwidth="0" height="300" marginheight="0" align="top" scrolling="No" frameborder="0" hspace="0" vspace="0">Browser not compatible. </iframe>

Use the HTML iframe frameborder Attribute

http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_iframe_frameborder.asp

Note: use frameBorder (cap B) for IE, otherwise will not work. But, the iframe frameborder attribute is not supported in HTML5. So, Use CSS instead.

<iframe src="http://example.org" width="200" height="200" style="border:0">

you can also remove scrolling using scrolling attribute http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_iframe_scrolling.asp

<iframe src="http://example.org" width="200" height="200" scrolling="no" style="border:0">

Also you can use seamless attribute which is new in HTML5. The seamless attribute of the iframe tag is only supported in Opera, Chrome and Safari. When present, it specifies that the iframe should look like it is a part of the containing document (no borders or scrollbars). As of now, The seamless attribute of the tag is only supported in Opera, Chrome and Safari. But in near future it will be the standard solution and will be compatible with all browsers. http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_iframe_seamless.asp

You can also do it with JavaScript this way. It will find any iframe elements and remove their borders in IE and other browsers (though you can just set a style of “border : none;” in non-IE browsers instead of using JavaScript). AND it will work even if used AFTER the iframe is generated and in place in the document (e.g. iframes that are added in plain HTML and not JavaScript)!

This appears to work because IE creates the border, not on the iframe element as you’d expect, but on the CONTENT of the iframe–after the iframe is created in the BOM. ($@&*#@!!! IE!!!)

Note: The IE part will only work (of course) if the parent window and iframe are from the SAME origin (same domain, port, protocol etc.). Otherwise the script will get “access denied” errors in the IE error console. If that happens, your only option is to set it before it is generated, as others have noted, or use the non-standard frameBorder=”0″ attribute. (or just let IE look fugly–my current favorite option 😉 )

Took me MANY hours of working to the point of despair to figure this out…

Enjoy. 🙂

I tried all of the above and if that doesn’t work for you try the below CSS resolved the issue for me. Which just tells the browsers to not add any padding or margin.

* {
  padding:0px;
  margin:0px;
 }

If the doctype of the page you are placing the iframe on is HTML5 then you can use the seamless attribute like so:

<iframe src="..." seamless="seamless"></iframe>

In your stylesheet add

{
  padding:0px;
  margin:0px;
  border: 0px

}

This is also a viable option.

If you are using the iFrame to fit the width and height of the entire screen, which I am assuming you are not based on the 300×300 size, you must also set the body margins to “0” like this:

<body style="margin:0px;">

I had an issue with bottom white border and i could not fix it with border, margin & padding rules … So add display:block; because iframe is an inline element.

This takes whitespace in your HTML into account.

The Answer 25

<iframe src="URL" frameborder="0" width="100%" height="200">
<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>
</iframe>

<iframe frameborder="1|0">

(OR)

<iframe src="URL" width="100%" height="300" style="border: none">Your browser 
does not support iframes.</iframe>

The <iframe> frameborder attribute is not supported in HTML5. Use CSS 
instead.
