Something like this? If instr(1,Request.QueryString,"deployment",0) = 0 then 'we didn't find it, do whatever Else 'its in there somewhere now do something with it End If Request.QueryString will return the entire string after the "?" in the URL. --Mike Carlson mike at mcarlson.net http://www.uselessthoughts.com ________________________________ From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org on behalf of Tom Dell'Aringa Sent: Fri 10/29/2004 8:20 AM To: thelist Subject: [thelist] ASP question - navigation Hi folks, I'm trying to build a dynamic navigation so I don't have to put variables in every page. I'm super rusty in ASP so I'm having some trouble. I have a simple styled UL that is a horizontal navigation. To indicate the current page I throw an ID on the HREF. So using ASP like this: <% scriptname = request.servervariables("script_name") %> I can get my path where the page rests: /blah/Handbook/Deployment/somepage.asp The key think I need to get is "Deployment" out of these URLs - that is the section they are in. How in ASP can I test for deployment so I can indicate the correct LI item as current? Psuedo code I want is: if url contains "Deployment" then LI item deployment gets "current" ID end if TIA Tom ===== Get Firefox! : http://www.pixelmech.com/ -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
