This brilliant method belongs to Joe Zim’s JavaScript Blog.

Here is the function.

    var parseQueryString = function( queryString ) {
        var params = {}, queries, temp, i, l;
        // Split into key/value pairs
        queries = queryString.split("&");
        // Convert the array of strings into an object
        for ( i = 0, l = queries.length; i < l; i++ ) {
            temp = queries[i].split('=');
            params[temp[0]] = temp[1];
        return params;

Using the function.

   function Test() {
        var qstring = "apple=7sf&orange=242&bananna=47614&cherry=8139";
        var myNewArray = parseQueryString(qstring);

As you can see, you now have an array of all of your query strings!

Get a Javascript DOM object from a jQuery object

jQuery object is a wrapper around the js DOM object. If you want to get the DOM object from the jQuery object, you should use get() method.

For example, if the jQuery object includes only one DOM object, you can use




However, if you have multiple DOM objects, you can use


var myvar;
myvar= $(‘#<%=selectedProductionIdsHdnVl.ClientID%>‘).get(0);
myvar.value = “b”;

same as

document.getElementById(“<%=selectedProductionIdsHdnVl.ClientID%>“).value = “B”;

This allowed me to use the ASP Hidden field and have the OnValueChanged server side event get fired.
