Hey all,
I have an script that I'm trying to figure out and it uses the following then appends more to the path.  My question is...what is the path to Drupal.settings.basePath ?

How can I find the url/path for: Drupal.settings.basePath ?

Thank you.

Yeah, and I'll be honest...I really could not understand it.  Just wondering if Drupal.settings.basePath is static.  

If so, what is the actual path?  
If not, is there a way to find the url/path it's pointing to?

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Ok Gary, I may be over my head on this one.  A former employee developed this module which did work, but now for some reason does not and I am trying to troubleshoot to fix.

I did review the link you just sent at akchauhan and understand it a bit more.  But my knowledge may be starting to become limited.

In our custom .js script, there is a variable which looks like the following:
var url = Drupal.settings.basePath +  "xxxx/xxxx_url";

So my goal is to figure our what this path is...

Sorry for being vague, this is my first experience with custom module development in Drupal.

if all you want to do is figure out what is it add this line to your javascript file. It should temporarily make a really annoying popup window with the value.
alert(Drupal.settings.basePath);
