Javascript Question

Take a url variable with regex

I have the following url

How do I get the value of the url parameter with regular expressions in javascript?


Answer Source
function extractUrlValue(key, url)
    if (typeof(url) === 'undefined')
        url = window.location.href;
    var match = url.match('[?&]' + key + '=([^&]+)');
    return match ? match[1] : null;

If you're trying to match 'url' from a page the visitor is currently on you would use the method like this:

var value = extractUrlValue('url');

Otherwise you can pass a custom url, e.g.

var value = extractUrlValue('url', '
