Bug Description

Originally reported by anotherjesse.


I should see the full terminal, and be able to interact with it.


When I go to the vnc tab on the instance detail page, the iframe cuts off part of the console and it doesn't always accept keyboard/mouse input.

So our noVNC solution works but is kind of choppy.

When I load the page with noVNC in an iframe I must click the status bar within the iframe for it to begin recognizing my keyboard input. Clicking on the main part of the console (the intuitive thing to do) does not work because of a weird issue with running canvas inside of an iframe.

So I added a notice stating that you should click the grey status bar :/

This is fine for now, but I think eventually we should think about embedding the js right into the page somehow.

    Slightly imrpoved usability of noVNC console

      * Sort of fixes bug 926338 :/
      * Removed iframe border, it doesn't fit with the rest of the design decisions in horizon.
      * Added a notice above the vnc console about getting console to recognize keyboard input.
