If you need a function:

<script type="text/javascript">

function getPageLocation() {
  return window.location;
}

</script>

<body onload="var url = getPageLocation(); alert(url);">

location Property
This property contains details of the current URL of the window and its value is always the Location object for that window.

Syntax: window.location
