Source Code vs Embed Form - iFrameAsked by leonip on July 14, 2015 at 10:03 PM
Can you elaborate the difference between the two.

You can check this guide on what embed code you can use: http://www.jotform.com/help/67-Which-Form-Embed-Code-Should-I-Use.
Depending on the website and platform you have, basically the "Source code" found in the form builder is just the default embed code for easy access.
If the default embed code doesn't work in your website or platform, you can check our "Embed Form" options to use different embed code instead.
Now for your question, the iFrame embed code is usually used when there's a code conflict between your website and the form, causing some problems like form not working as expected or styling issues. If you use the iFrame code, external sources will not affect the form inside it.
I hope that helps. Do let us know if you need more information on this.
On behalf of my colleague, you are welcome.
