Hi Guys

I am using thickbox on ASP.NET 2.0 website

I am having problems dynamically changing href url after the page loads, I am using asp.net 2.0 page and currently using sqlquery to retrieve href url using Eval method.

When the page is loaded href is filled with url from databse which works fine, what i am trying to do is then manipulate href based on some conditions on the page.

What would be the best way to change href when the page is loaded? i am thinking about running code from vb page and the passing values to href. I can write vb function that will give me desired url but i am not sure how to pass the results to thickbox and change href value so when usr clicks on it it opens desired image


Any help will be greatly appreciated

Thank you

The problem being is that i need to work with a thickbox because of the website that i am working on, i need to have a pop-up window with an image, and thickbox fits well in that area.

Thanks anyway for sugestion

Then you can use jquery to search and replace your hyperlink

$("a#changeme").attr('href','http://maps.google.com/');

yes you can use this javascript function to get value from url
var urlval = getQueryVariable('urlval ');
$("a#changeme").attr('href',urlval );

function getQueryVariable(variable) 
{ 
var query = window.location.search.substring(1); 
var vars = query.split("&"); 
for (var i=0;i<vars.length;i++) { 
var pair = vars[i].split("="); 
if (pair[0] == variable) { 
return pair[1]; 
} 
} 
} 

Open in new window

I had a litle play with $("a#changeme").attr('href','http://maps.google.com/'); example,

It does change the href of a thickbox,  however because i have multiple thickboxes (<a class=thickbox) on a page it changed the href for all of them. Is there a way of using javascript function to search through the thickboxes for a specific words for example "Pictures/Photo1" and then replace it with a different value ie "Pictures/Photo1.new") but only in a thickbox that contains Photo1 not Photo2,3 etc

Thanks

Yes you can use replace function

or
$(this).attr('href').replace('all','something');
