Try this:

var CurrentUrl = document.getElementById('MyIFrame').contentWindow. location.href;

You can try this code:

<script type="text/javascript">
function setSrc(obj, url) {
obj.src = url;

function getSrc(obj) {
return obj.src;
// above is the code to get the url from your frame

// now we place that url into the input box:
document.getElementById("frameid").value = myframe; // with frameURL defined earlier
<a href="#" onclick="javascript:getSrc(document.getElementById('myframe '))">Get src</a> - displays with alert</p>

<iframe id="myframe" src=""></iframe>
<input Id="frameid"><p>frameurl not showing in input</p>

My solution is using jQuery. You have to do following:

$("#iframeID").contents().find('a').each(function () {
var href = $(this).attr('href').split("/"),
newHref = href[href.length-1];
$(this).attr("href", "" + newHref).
attr("target", "_top");

I don't know why I am not able to reply to your comments. So yes this solution is not working because it doesn't comply to same origin policy. The iframe has to be from the same domain only otherwise it will throw out errors.
