jquery display iframe src

Hello Experts,

I have an iframe whose src changes.

ie
<a href="#" onClick="$('#login').show();">Show login</a>
<iframe id="login" src="login.php" width="500" height="200" />

Although it starts of as login.php - the user (in the login screen) may decide to load up forgot-password.php or new-user.php (to create a new account).  They load either of these screens by clicking on a link inside login.php. This action refreshs the 'screen' inside the iframe with the correct php page.  

I want to call a piece of code (using jQuery) that will tell me the name of this screen.
I would have thought when the user clicks into the forgot password/new user page - it would in turn change the 'src' tag from login.php to whatever the current screen in the iframe is - however, I'm not sure.  

Is this possible to achieve?

Yes.
jQuery(function(){
		jQuery('iframe').load(function(){//each time this is called, the frame reloaded
			var current_src = jQuery(this).attr('src');
			var current_body = $('#iframeID').contents().find('body');
			alert(current_body.html());//shows the HTML code inside the <body></body>
		});
	});
