Hello,

what is the best option to get the current url and which event to use? With current url I mean what is the current value of the adress bar. I already tried onDocumentComplete and onBeforeNavigate but these events sometimes thrown with Ressources (like javascript) or something like that. I need a very relyable function to get the current url of the current loaded website. And also need to get notified about changes.

Thanks,
harald

Hi Harald,

You can use IEApp.LocationURL to get the current Url.

Hey Sergey,

thanks great, exactly what i wanted.

Another question: Is it also possible to the the origin from that url?

The requirement: I need to track every website the user visites. And if the users reloads or manually enters a domain and presses enter (so origin is empty) i need to clean the history. Which event do i need? Or any idea how to achive this?

Thanks,
Harald

Hi Harald,

As far as I remember, you used the 'referer' property of HTML document. Doesn't this property suit you in this case?
Please look at the HttpMonitor example: How to monitor requests and responses in Internet Explorer
It should help you.
