Hi All,

I want to extract URL from Anchor tag.

Below Anchor tag is defined in Asp.Net Search.Aspx page.

<a onclick = "call_new_url({"abxz":1,"emps":"","ufd":1},"http://localhost:8989/Search.aspx?aa=1;")" style="position: relative;"></a>

Now I want to retrieve ONLY http://localhost:8989/Search.aspx?aa=1; PART from anchor tag using JavaScript or jQuery.

Note - There is no href defined in anchor tag.

Can anyone help me on this?

What I have tried:

I tried with indexOf and substring but it's not working.

Is there any in-built method?

As you can possibly see from the messed-up syntax highlighting, that tag is not well-formed. You can't nest quotes like that - you would either need to use different quotes for the attribute value and the string values within it, or encode the quotes within the attribute value as &quot;.

You can use the document tag selector and regex to match any <a/> elements with the onclick event. I've put together an example here on JSFiddle[^]
