I have a page on one domain.  (www.mypage.com/mydirectory/defaults.asp)

Within this page is an iframe that points to a different URL.  (www.differenturl.com/calendar.aspx)

When the calendar.aspx page loads in the iFrame I need it to get the URL of the page that loaded the iFrame.  So basically I need it get this:

www.mypage.com/mydirectory/

Is there a way to do this?  If so, can you please explain how.  Thanks!

That may be listed in the referrer information in the http headers.

Hi cdemott33

try this way,

.aspx code
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
        <body>
            <form id="form2" runat="server">
            <iframe id="Iframe1" runat="server" src="http://www.google.com" height="200px" width="200px"></iframe>
            <asp:Button ID="btnget" runat="server" Text="GetParentURL" />
            </form>
        </body>
</html>

.vb code

Imports System.Data
Public Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
   
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
       
    End Sub

    Protected Sub btnget_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnget.Click
        Response.Write(Request.UrlReferrer.ToString())
    End Sub
End Class

hope this helps.

Hi  patil786 -

When I click the button the response.write displays "www.google.com".  I want to get www.mypage.com/mydirectory/defaults.asp. Any thoughts on how I can do this?
