IFrame component

The iFrame component is used to embed a page from another site into a frame. By default the frame width will be dynamically scaled if no value is used.

The options for the iFrame configuration are as follows:

  • Component Title - text input field that does not display for this component but useful for giving the component a title for keeping track of what it is used for on the page
  • Target application: Place the URL of the web page or application that will be featured in the iFrame.
  • Pass parameters: Check this box if you want to pass the parameters from the source page into the iFrame.
  • Width and Height: Set fixed dimensions for the iFrame. By default, the component will fill the width wherever it is placed.¬†
