View Full Version : Style Sheet Switcher (v1.1) based on QueryString Parameter

11-09-2010, 05:16 PM
I am using the stylesheet switcher on dynamic drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex9/stylesheetswitcher.htm) . Is there a way to change stylesheets based on a querystring parameter? Basically, if the query string includes "&StyleSheet=BlueStyle" then call and set the BlueStyle.css and cookie on page load.

Any ideas or help would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

Sure, try the below modified .js file, which lets you use the URL parameter to set the stylesheet to use on the page via the syntax:


where "BlueStyle" should be the "title" attribute value of the linked stylesheet in question, for example:

<link rel="alternate stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" title="BlueStyle" href="user.css" />

Not thoroughly tested, but should work.

Hi ddadmin, thanks, I ran a test and it works well, however I don't see it setting a cookie. Is there a way to do this based on the parameter? Thanks again for your help.

Inside the modified .js file, try finding the below chunk of code, and add to it the line(s) in red:

if (urlselectstyle){
setCookie("mysheet_r_days", urlselectstyle, 10)

The 10 in the above case means 10 days persistence. Again, not fully tested, but should work. :)

Hi ddadmin, changed the line to and it worked perfectly. Thanks for your help.

setCookie("mysheet", urlselectstyle, 10)

Hi, have you still got the modified .js file?

I'd like to use the same js query solution. Is the particular file still available?

Thank you!

This should do it:
