Example

Scrolling is disabled on this iframe:

<iframe src="iframe-content.html" height="200"
width="200" frameborder="1" scrolling="no">
<p>Your browser does not support iframes.
That kinda sucks, eh?</p>
</iframe>

Description

Much like you can with a frame element, you can instruct the browser to suppress scroll bars from appearing using scrolling attribute, regardless of the content that appears in the iframe.

If no scrolling attribute is applied, the default that browsers revert to is "auto", so there is very little good reason for applying scrolling="auto" within the iframe; you are almost always going to use it for the purpose of suppressing scroll bars, using the value of "no", particularly when you want the iframe to be embedded in such a way that it does not appear to look like something ‘stuck clumsily on to the page’.

Value

"yes", "no" or "auto" only
