Something like this?
If instr(1,Request.QueryString,"deployment",0) = 0 then
      'we didn't find it, do whatever
      'its in there somewhere now do something with it
End If
Request.QueryString will return the entire string after the "?" in the URL.

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:


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:

  url contains "Deployment"
  LI item deployment gets "current" ID
end if
