Get the current URL from a IFRAME using JavaScript

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to Get the current URL from a IFRAME using JavaScript

Getting the current URL from IFRAME

To get the current URL from a IFRAME, first we need to access the iframe inside the JavaScript by using the document.getElementById() method.

const iframe =  document.getElementById("iframe");

Now, it has a contentWindow.location.href property by using that we can access the current url.

const currentURL = iframe.contentWindow.location.href;

Note: The above way only works if the both domains are having same name, if the both domains are different it doesn’t work because of cross origin resource sharing security exceptions.

Getting URL of IFRAME from cross domain

For cross domains, we can use the document.baseURI property to get the current url.

Here is an example:

const currentURL = document.baseURI;

console.log(currentURL);
