    scaling content of an iframe


    i have posted a lot recently about iframes and i apologise for this, but i am fairly new to umbraco and just getting used to things.

    I have set up an XSLT to set up an iframe macro, and then inputted this into my template

    I am now looking to find a way to scale the content, which is a webpage, so that it fits within the frame.

    I basically want the webpage to zoom out a bit so the whole page can be seen in the frame.

    Any help would be greatly appreciate

    Hi Ethan,

    While I would recommend you not use iframes unless you really have to, you could use a Javascript library like squeezeFrame to make the iframes content fit on your webpages container.

    It uses the unofficial CSS property "zoom" so I guess you could do it manually too without a library. The property "transform: scale()" would be a more modern way of doing it.

    Hi Per,

    I spent a lot of time looking for a way to embed a webpage in my website and after lots of searching found iframes to be the only way to do this with umbraco. And it has caused me lots of greif but i am very nearly there!

    The squeezeframe looks like it would do the job i am after.

    I'm sorry to be annoying but i am very new to this, how do i implement the squeezeframe into my site and into the iframe?

    I have attemped making a new script .js file but then not sure how to implement this into my iframe embedded content

    Ethan, Did you get Squeezeframe to work for you?
