hello experts i need help to split a string
My url string is like:
http://www.test1.com/showimage.cfm?imageurl=http://www.test2.com/image?id=1234&group=5678

looking for url.imageurl i will get:http://www.test2.com/image?id=1234
So i think i need to split the string to get only the second part (after "imageurl="):
http://www.test2.com/image?id=1234&group=5678

Any help?

<cfset theURL = "http://www.test1.com/showimage.cfm?imageurl=http://www.test2.com/image?id=1234&group=5678">

If you feel that there will only be one query string parameter on this url, then you can grab it easily by looking for the equals sign...

<cfset imageURL = listLast(theURL,"=")>

Note that if you try to use this full address as a link, you will have trouble unless you escape it.. there are two ?s and the &group will be considered a second parameter, not part of imageURL

http://www.test1.com/showimage.cfm?imageurl=http://www.test2.com/image?id=1234&group=5678

http://www.test1.com/showimage.cfm?imageurl=http://www.test2.com/image/blablabla.jpg. in this case  i need :http://www.test2.com/image/blablabla.jpg)

Sorry, it should have been listRest(theURL,"=") , not listLast.
