Getting URL parameters using Javascript 

Most server based languages like PHP and ASP provide simple ways to get to parameters on the URL line.

Javascript does not.  You need to custom write a function to use regular expressions to extract them from window.location.href.

This function will do that:
function getparam( paramname )
  paramname = paramname.replace(/[\[]/,"\\\[").replace(/[\]]/,"\\\]");

  var regexbuild = "[\\?&]"+paramname+"=([^&#]*)";
  var regex = new RegExp( regexbuild );
  var results = regex.exec( window.location.href );

  if( results == null )
    return "";
    return results[1];

You can then extract the parameters using the following type of code:

var natscode = getparam('nats');

Where this would extract the parameter nats to natscode.
