Using jQuery load() function with key value pairs in query string

Hi,

Am using jQuery for some AJAX work. Am using the code below to load pages:

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('a.somelink').click(function() {
    $('.maincontent').hide().load('someurl', {'term': $(this).text()});
    return false;
  });
});

and this is the url which generates the request:

<a class="somelink" href="someurl?term=<?php echo $row['name'];?>"><?php echo $row['name'];?></a>

All works fine - no problem.

However, the request which allows me to do the MySQL is generated using text(). I want to be able to retrieve the key/value pairs in the url to do some other stuff eg

<a class="somelink" href="someurl?term=<?php echo $row['name']&amp;section=<?php echo $row['section']">some link text here</a>

I am trying the grab the values of term and section ---- can anyone help?

Many thanks

Daisy

grab from javascript ? its simple, just use regexp like this:

function parse(text)
{
var ret={}
var temp=text.match(/\w+=\w+(?=&)|\w+=\w+$/g);
for (var temp2 in temp)
  ret[temp[temp2].match(/\w+(?==)/).toString()]=temp[temp2].match(/\w+$/).toString();
return ret;
}

var a="some page?test=1&test2=53";

alert( parse(a).toSource());

Hi,
Many thanks for your help - sorry, I am not up to speed on regex..

using this as the url for var a:

var a = '<a href="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];?>?section=admin&page=newpage">hello</a>'

alerts this back:

($section:"admin")) only, not the $page:"newpage"..  

Also, assuming we had the key/value paird, can you tell me how I would apply this to the jQuery load function described above?

Many thanks
