jQuery onHandler return split of value

I am using an onHandler set from the web companion to get the value for a button - and it returns "window.open("https://url/link.asp?sku=123-4567-ABC890&version=Z28");". I really only want to see the SKU value returned. Is there a way I can do this with Tealium?

Hi Annah, In the jQuery onHandler extension, select "JS Code" from the drop down when setting your data source, and do something like this: {code:javascript} jQuery(this).attr("href").match(/(?:sku\=)(.*)(?:&)/)[1]; {code} To explain each part of the expression in detail: This bit is a regular expression that will match the SKU value: {code:javascript} /(?:sku\=)(.*)(?:&)/ {code} ... but we want only the captured SKU, so we need to address the second part of the match array (index 1), hence: {code:javascript} (/(?:sku\=)(.*)(?:&)/)[1] // [1] will return the 2nd match from the regex {code} {code:javascript} jQuery(this).attr("href") {code} ...will return the URL of the item you clicked on, which I'm assuming is where the string you posted originally came from. I hope this helps - it's a bit tricky to explain without getting too verbose. Let me know if you have any questions! Craig.

There isn't actually a href in the code - but I modified it to jQuery(this).attr("onclick").match and it works great. Thank you!!!
