Embedding an odoo page in an iframe?

We have linked odoo to some internal systems.  We have setup some "popup" panels in our system, to show an iframe view of odoo entities, allowing quick and easy editing of the data.  A typical URL for these popups is http://localhost:8069/web?#id=6103&view_type=form&model=sites.site&menu_id=167&action=227.

Is it possible to "hide" the menu in odoo, simply by using a URL parameter or other technique?  Similar to the google maps URL parameter "embed=true"?

This would enable our popups to appear more seamless.

No native function to do it ! 

But you simply do it with a1 inherited view...

Inherit the view web.webclient_bootstrap and add a if to check if get param "embed" is present...

<xpath expr="//nav[@id='oe_main_menu_navbar']" position="attributes">
       <attribute name="class"></attribute>
       <attribute name="t-att-class">"navbar navbar-inverse %s" % (request.params.get('embed') and "hidden")</attribute>
