I wonder why the following iFrame has scrollbars:

<iframe width='600' height='200' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' src='https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?hl=en_US&key=0Aliqp0kGPjWsdERacHFDVzNzb1N3RHREZzYwVGQ5OVE&output=html&widget=true&chrome=false'></iframe>

Thanks in advance!

The IFRAME doesn't, but an element (a DIV) inside the framed document does.

Hi there Rain Lover,

if you don't want scrollbars then you will have to change the iframe width and height attributes. ;)

<iframe width='800' height='254'...

...instead of...
<iframe width='600' height='200'...

If you don't want to have scrollbars, you can use "overflow" CSS property.


should do the job. If you use this, everything looks the same except there are no scrollbars. So some of the content may not be shown. And of course, this works only if you can modify the CSS of the iframed document.
