          var $thisFrame = $(".pp_content iframe", window.parent.document)
         $thisFrame.css("height", $(document).outerHeight());

function setIFrameSize(frmHeight) {
        var $thisFrame = $(".pp_content iframe", window.parent.document)
        $thisFrame.css("height", frmHeight + "px");

function setIFrameSizeWithAnimation() {
       var $thisFrame = $(".pp_content iframe", window.parent.document)
