Resizing an iFrame

P: 55
I need to resize an iframe so that it doesn't show its scrollbars. It can't exceed this height by much. I need to open internal and external pages in this frame. Yes, I know it would be easier to open them in a new window, but thats not an option. Any suggestions?

on which base you want to do the resizing? ... i just ask because in case of external files you cannot read from the page ... since that would be against the same origin policy.

kind regards

well, I basically want the frame to have enough height so that it doesn't have a vertical scroll bar, so it is based on the size of the content of the iframe. No work around, huh?

Thanks for response :)

as i said ... for external pages you would be out of luck ... the external owner wants to and should have the only control about his content ...

There's one or two ways you could do this: if you serve the page from your domain, or if you control the external domain, you can add some code.

One question though: what if the height of the page is very large?
