Hi experts

I'm using jquery with a html page.

Right now I'm adding an image to my  page my using .prepend like this.

var myimage = $('<a href=""><img class="testclass" src="Images/testimage.jpg" /></a>');

This image is added correctly to my page and the hyperlink works.  It takes me to:

What is the syntax to add some parameter to the url that are stored in a variable?

So i would have these variables

var parameter1 = "apple"
var parameter2 = "peach"

But I need the syntax to add these variables  to this url in the snippet below:

var myimage = $('<a href=""><img class="testclass" src="Images/testimage.jpg" /></a>');

so I want the hyperlink url to go to:

Anyone know the syntax?

This is an invalid URL. If you wish to add a query string to the URL, you must begin with a question mark and follow it with your key=value pairs, separated by ampersands. For example:

Open in new window

The simplest way to add the variables to the URL is to hard code them.
var myimage = $('<a href=""><img class="testclass" src="Images/testimage.jpg" /></a>');

Open in new window

But I imagine the variables are variable, so you would need to concatenate the URL string.
var parameter1 = "apple";
var parameter2 = "peach";
var myimage = $('<a href=""+parameter1+"&parameter2="+parameter2"><img class="testclass" src="Images/testimage.jpg" /></a>');

Open in new window
