$input->httpUrl() method

Get the http URL that initiated the current request, including scheme, URL segments and page numbers

  • This should be the same as $page->httpUrl except that it includes URL segments and page numbers, when present.

  • Note that this does not include query string unless requested (see arguments).

  • WARNING: if query string requested, it can contain undefined/unsanitized user input. If you use it for output make sure that you entity encode first (by running through $sanitizer->entities() for instance).

Example

$url = $input->httpUrl();
$url = $sanitizer->entities($url); // entity encode for output
echo "You accessed this page at: $url";

Usage

// basic usage
$string = $input->httpUrl();

// usage with all arguments
$string = $input->httpUrl(bool $withQueryString = false);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
withQueryString (optional)bool

Include the query string? (default=false)

Return value

string
