Hi All,

I have to get the referral URL.

I tried with following method in javascript:
a) document.referrer
b) window.document.referrer

Both are returning correct value in safari and mozilla but in IE both are returning space.

I tried to use Java API method : request.getHeader("Referer");

This is also returning correct value in safari and mozilla but in IE it is returning null.

I am really surprised that how every method is returning space or null in IE.


Does anyone have any idea about it?

Please help me!! I am not getting any other way which can work in all browser.

Need your help.

You can never expect the Referer header to always have a value.
