Dear experts,

Page is rendered in transitional mode.

iframe #sampleframe {

When the source page has bigger height and width, scroll bars came out in IE and Chromium instead of hiding the extra content. It only works in FF. How to solve?

You can hide the scroll bars for an iframe by simply adding the property scrolling="no" to the iframe tag like in the code snippet.
<iframe src="" scrolling="no"></iframe>

Open in new window
