I have some Javascript stored, that I want to be able to extract the location= value, which is a URL.

The string is something like:

<script>window.location='http://www.expert-exchange.com'</script>

Open in new window


How would one do this?

You can use a regex, but a simple substring search should suffice.

e.g.

string source = "<script>window.location='http://www.expert-exchange.com'</script>";
int startingQuoteIndex = source.IndexOf("'");
int endingQuoteIndex = source.IndexOf("'", startingQuoteIndex + 1);
string url = source.Substring(startingQuoteIndex + 1, endingQuoteIndex - startingQuoteIndex);

Open in new window
