The url read-only property of the Request interface contains the URL of the request.

Syntax

var myURL = request.url;

Value

A USVString indicating the url of the request.

Example

In the following snippet, we create a new request using the Request.Request() constructor (for an image file in the same directory as the script), then save the url of the request in a variable:

var myRequest = new Request('flowers.jpg');
var myURL = myRequest.url; // "http://mdn.github.io/fetch-examples/fetch-request/flowers.jpg"
