iframe auto resizer idea

Could Canvas consider an idea like this Iframe-resizer by davidjbradshaw

when embeding an external url/tool or add an LTI page that use iframe approach, the iframe could auto adjust to its actual height.

This is for better user experience and quite easy to implement.

Canvas needs to include the iframeResizer.min.js

and a javascript call iFrameResize() .

the embedded tool/resource could include iframeResizer.contentWindow.min.js

if not included, it's just what it is, like now.

Quite some existing resources/tools that teachers use, might still not able to produce within Canvas, or teachers simply dont have time/resource to reproduce.

With this feature, many teachers/developers/users could be benefited from it.

( Suggested it within the idea area, but I could not find my post, so suggested here again )

 @w_hol ​, I found your feature idea submission, and for the sake of completeness I'm providing the link to it here:

how can that idea be voted ?

my colleagues wanted to, but they could not see the vote arrows.

The idea is not ready for voting I guess...

 @w_hol ​, you're right; the idea is not yet ready for voting. The Community Team reviews new submissions, asks for additional details if necessary, and decides whether to move an idea into the queue for the next voting stage.

Thanks Andy. Good to know that.

Though not all embedded resources are through LTI tools. It could be just an link to external URL or using iframe html code in content.
