Parsing URL Parameters on runtime

  • Hi all,

    I am putting my hands on my very first plugin, btw. I am quite new to JavaScript in total (my world was PHP before).

    I was quite sure, that everything is set up quite well, but on runtime, all I get is a black screen (I am still on the last real stable version).

    This is the action script I set up:

         // Actions
         pluginProto.acts = {};
         var acts = pluginProto.acts;
         acts.ParamGet = function (myparam)
              var query =;
              var vars = query.split("&");
              for (var i=0;i<vars.length;i++) {
                var pair = vars[i].split("=");
                if (pair[0] == variable) {
                  this.ParamValue = pair[1];

    For instance Class I set up this:

         // Instance class
         pluginProto.Instance = function(type)
              this.type = type;
              this.runtime = type.runtime;
              this.ParamValue = "";

    I am also not yet familiar with the error console in Chrome and Firefox (never needed for PHP), I do hope someone can figure out what is my fault?

    Here is a live example:

    This should show up a textfield with the value of parameter "test"
