    Smile Reach IF statment from address field

    Hi!
    Is there any way to reach a IF ELSE statment via the address filed?

    Like there is with the GET method for PHP?

    For example index.html?car=mercedes writes or reqiure a file, that should have been viewed if the variable cars value was "mercedes"?

    you can check the value of the query string like this:
    Code:
    var car=window.location.search.substring(1).split("=")[1];
    if (car=="mercedes"){
    alert("do stuff")
    }
    ... the "do stuff" bit I leave to you...

    Allowing for missing parameter:
    Code:
    var car=window.location.search.substring(1).split("=");
    
    if ( car.length == 2 && car[ 1 ] == "mercedes" )
    {
      alert("do stuff")
    }

    fair enough. seems overly cautious though... if the string is index.html?car=

    then window.location.search.substring(1).split("=")[1]

    will return blank, which obviously != "mercedes", so why?

    I just don't like to see the practice of assuming the existence of an object or element, even if it's not fatal.
