Iframe taking up space :(

Hi,
I have an invisible iframe on a page, but even though its invisible its taking up the space that it would take up when visible :(

I want it to be completly invisible and then when visible it should expand the page...
(code is below)
<html>
      <head>
            <meta  name="vs_targetSchema"  content="http://schemas.microsoft.com/intellisense/ie5">
            <script  id="clientEventHandlersJS"  language="javascript">
<!--
function ShowWebSite(val)
{
      document.all.myFrame.src=val;
      document.all.myFrame.style.visibility="visible";
}
 
function Button1_onclick() {
var v = document.all("txtWebSite").value;
ShowWebSite(v);
}
//-->
            </script>
      </head>
      <body>
            <iframe  id="myFrame"  frameborder="0"  vspace="0"  hspace="0"  marginwidth="0"  marginheight="0"
                  width="600"  scrolling="yes"  height="1000"  style="BORDER-RIGHT: black 1px solid; BORDER-TOP: black 1px solid; Z-INDEX: 999; LEFT: 20px; BORDER-LEFT: black 1px solid; BORDER-BOTTOM: black 1px solid;  visibility:hidden;">
            </iframe>
            <form  id="form1">
                  Enter website:<input  type="text"  id="txtWebSite"  NAME="txtWebSite"  value="http://www.yahoo.com">
                  <input  type="button"  value="Show"  id="Button1"  name="Button1"  onclick="return Button1_onclick()">
            </form>
      </body>
</html>

jumanj1,

Instead of visibility: hidden you need to use display.  The value is none to hide it and inline to show it (or clear the value).  E.g.

display: none;
display: inline;

Visibility doesn't remove it from the page; just hides it.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
