Default How to parse a parameter out of a URL onClick()

I need to create an onClick() event and need some help. I need to somehow extract a portion of my URL, which will then be used as the new URL when the user clicks on a button.

So if the existing URL = "http://website/folder/Ticket.aspx?Job=http://website.com/estimating/object/Job/detail/1111" and I want to extract the 2nd portion (http://website.com/estimating/object/Job/detail/1111) and then go there...

I'm having trouble figuring out a way to parse out that parameter. I've tried to use split with no avail - I get an error that it isn't allowed:

        var page = parent.location;
        var newpage = page.split("=")[1];
        window.location.href = newpage;

I'm stuck. Any suggestions?

Use location.search.

Thank you so much. The location.search worked wonderfully.

I also made sure I was looking at the proper location within my array:

var mypage = location.search;
var newpage = mypage.split("=");
window.location.href = newpage[1];

And it works!
