I would like to have this hyperlink link active if a value in the URL exists like 'RecordID'

<div id="show" style="display: none">
    <a href="javascript:showOrHide();"><p class="slide" align="center"><font size="1">Show/Hide Map View</font></p></a>
</div>

  this js does not work?

 <script type="text/javascript">
  function show()
   {
       if (window.location.href.indexOf("RecordID"))
       {
           alert("your url contains the name RecordID");
       }      
     
   };
  </script>

window.onload = function() {
        show();
}

  function show()
   {
       if (window.location.href.indexOf("RecordID")>0)
       {
document.getElementById("show").style.display = "block";
           alert("your url contains the name RecordID");
       }

showOrHide() should be show()

That's not it or I have not explained what I hope to have done.

I do not want the Hyperlink to show until the user clicks on another link on a previous page, which i see at the bottom of the browser, a URL that has a value in it called 'RecordID'. I was hoping that I could use the div tag to not show the Link until I tested the Url for that value in the string.
