The ui-iframe node is a UI widget that can be used to embed an external Web page in a Node-RED dashboard.

The URL of a web page to embed can be specified in the settings menu or by the url property of an input message.

The payload property of the input message specifies data to send to the embedded page using the Web messaging API (postMessage). This allows commands to be sent to the embedded page. If data from the embedded web page is received via the Web messaging API, it is output as the payload value the of the outgoing message.
