[webView setDelegate:self];
[self.view addSubview:webView];

NSString *sessionId = [[OCRESTAPIClient sharedClient] sessionId];
NSString *value = [@"xid=" stringByAppendingString:sessionId];

NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@""];

[request setValue:value forHTTPHeaderField:@"Cookie"];

[webView loadRequest:request];

User can walking on my site and i must to know where he is. How can i get web address of loaded page in webView?


Please make your class the delegate of the webview using

webView.delegate = self

Then override the delegate method,

func webView(_ webView: UIWebView, shouldStartLoadWith request: URLRequest, navigationType: UIWebViewNavigationType) -> Bool {
        print("current url is \(request.mainDocumentURL!.absoluteString)")
        return true;

This will give the current url going to be loaded
