    window.location in link ???

    Is it possible to grab the full url into my "email a friend" script along with the body text?


    <INPUT TYPE="image" src="fun2.gif" border=0 value="grab" name="grab" alt="Email a Friend This Page!" onClick="parent.location='mailto:friends@email-here.com?subject=Check out this Website&body=Hello, I found a great web page at window.location'">

    Why not just do this
    Code:
    <a href="mailto:friends@email-here.com?subject=Check out this Website&body=Hello, I found a great web page at window.location.href">
    <img src"fun2.gif" border=0 value="grab" name="grab" alt="Email a Friend This Page!" />
    </a>

    thanks but I tried that one already. It just shows in the email body:

    "Hello, I found a great web page at window.location.href"

    Thanks Aaron and the email body does work BUT it changes my initial web page to something else being a blank page with the url in it.

    we are close, any ideas?

    tested and works:

    Code:
    <a href="javascript:window.location='mailto:friends@email-here.com?subject=Check out this Website&body=Hello, I found a great web page at ' + window.location.href">
    <img src"fun2.gif" border=0 value="grab" name="grab" alt="Email a Friend This Page!" />
    </a>

    One more thing I just ran into...

    When the URL has an "&" in it everything after this is being stripped off. Any idea on retaining the rest of the url in these cases? I guess it could be a limitation of the browser...

    HTML Code:
    <a href="#" onclick="window.location='mailto:friends@email-here.com?subject=Check out this Website&body=Hello, I found a great web page at ' + window.location.href + window.location.search">
    <img src"fun2.gif" border=0 value="grab" name="grab" alt="Email a Friend This Page!" />

    • Your code is too unstructured and/or formatted poorly - correcting it is too time consuming
    • I simply don't know the answer

    Nice thought but this rendered the same output, it's still stripping everything from the &.

    You need to encode the text using URL safe characters:

    Code:
    function emailPage() {
      var messageText = 'Hello, I found a great web page at ' + window.location;
      var subjectText = 'Check out this Website';
      var email = prompt("Enter your friend's email address:", 'email@address.com');
      
      window.location = 'mailto:' + email + 
          '?subject=' + encodeURIComponent(subjectText) +
          '&body=' + encodeURIComponent(messageText);
    }
    Then to use this function:
    HTML Code:
    <a href="#" onclick="emailPage(); return false;">Email This Page!</a>

    The query string is not considered part of the URL. You can retrieve these vales through the window.location.search property.

    Hey toicontien this works great however I don't want the prompt for an email address. Is it possible to take that part out of the code?
