Current Page URL


May i know how i can access the full page URL into a variable in a component? I am writing a custom apex page which call a custom component. My custom apex page will be called in a framed environment. (Header, left side menu and my Apex page will be in the right side wide frame). On the first load of the page i would like to grab the main url. I have tried the below but they are not addressing my issue. Any help on this is highly appreciated.


Page_URL__c= ApexPages.currentPage().getUrl() - This is giving me the custom apex code path (apex/CSP_Tracking) not the main page url which should be


Page_URL__c = ApexPages.currentPage().getHeaders().get('Host') - This is giving me but i am interested to get the rest of the URL which is "/home/home.jsp"


Thank you,

The frames are what is causing the issue here, your apex runs in the context of the frame, so it's returning the right URL. The end user's browser is the only thing that knows the current top-level page URL, your code inside the frame has no way of knowning that.


You're going to have to use javascript for this, which means it's not available in the page controller without some extra effort to post it back after the page loads.
