This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.


The get() method of the URLSearchParams interface returns the first value associated to the given search parameter.




The name of the parameter to return.


A USVString if the given search parameter is found; otherwise, null.


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 URLSearchParams(document.location.search.substring(1));
let name = params.get("name"); // is the string "Jonathan"
let age = parseInt(params.get("age"), 10); // is the number 18

Requesting a parameter that isn't present in the query string will return null:

let address = params.get("address"); // null
