Accessing Parameter from HTTP-Request

Accessing Parameter from HTTP-Request

Question:

I want to attach a parameter to a URL like this, “url?name=value”, and use the parameter on the HTML page. Is this possible?

Answer:

Yes; you can do this by using the following code:

paramVals = ""if (document.URL) {    callingURL = document.URL    hookPos = callingURL.indexOf("?")    if (hookPos != -1) {        paramVals = callingURL.substring(hookPos+1,callingURL.length)    }}

At the end of this, you’ll have a variable called paramVals that contains everything in the URL after the “?”. You can then just look at that to get the values that you passed the page.
