URL.searchParams

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The searchParams property of the URL interface returns a URLSearchParams object allowing access to the GET query arguments contained in the URL.

Syntax

var urlSearchParams = URL.searchParams;

Value

URLSearchParams object.

Example

If the URL of your page is https://example.com/?name=Jonathan&age=18 you could parse out the 'name' and 'age' parameters using:

let params = (new URL(document.location)).searchParams;
let name = params.get("name"); // is the string "Jonathan"
let age = parseInt(params.get("age")); // is the number 18
