You cannot run a command from the url.  You can pass parameters and the have the application process them off of the onload event if you have control of the code of the target page.  

If you could do it the way you described, it would allow sites to realy screw up others sites off of a link.

This trick (with the help of jQyery) will do it

$(document).ready(function() {
		//alert();
		var url = window.location.href;
		var zoom = url.split("?");
		if((zoom[zoom.length - 1]) == 'zoom120'){
		$("body").css("zoom","120%");
		}		
	});

Open in new window


Just add 'zoom120' to the end of the url

Hello Hagay,

 I don't have any permission to insert code to the url page,

 for example the url is http://www.yahoo.com & I want to add some code to this url to be opened in ZOOM 120%

Thanks

url by itself is only directive. The referred page (provided that it contains some code in it), can parse it and do thing accordingly.
If you don't have an access to the page content, or you cannot manipulate the link to the url, nothing can't be done.

As said, the page must contain code (as in my previous answer), and the link must be something like:
<a href="www.yahoo.com?zoom120">Yahoo</a>.
