jquery read post data from url in a .load on the called page.

I am performing a

 $.('#mycontainer').load('myurl.html?id=123');

on the myurl.html when I try to read the location.href, it is showing me the index.html(parent container) url.

I need to be able to read the id param from the url on the myurl.html page to determine what I need to do as it can change based on certain things.

At the end, the question is how do I read the url param from the page that was called in?

Thanks

Judson

This will work if #mycontainer is an iframe, otherwise myurl.html will have no context of its own as it's content will just be in-line within the hosting page, as you have seen.

Thats what I was afraid of. I can do this with coldfusion or anther server language no problem but am trying to figure out a way to manipulate data without using a server side language.

I could easily grab the attribute like id=1, or id=2 and then set my url accordingly. but I want to have code blocks instead. maybe I can show hide onsuccess based on the id?

I'm guessing the content being loaded is static but if you can change myurl.html to myurl.cfm then you will unlock all the information you need.  Or you could use some kind of proxy - loader.cfm?content=myurl.html&id=123' and get it to include the content.
