Retrieves the value of a parameter that was passed after ? in the URL. This is particularly useful if you pass a uniquely identifying code to the URL when you recruit your participants, like http://spellout.net/ibexexps/PennController/Demo/experiment.html?id=abcdefgh



What does (PennController.) mean?

  • parametername :


@newTrial( "my trial" ,
@    newButton("helloworld", "Hello world!")
@        .log()
@        .print()
@        .wait()
$.log( "ID" , GetURLParameter( "id" ) );
  • Will add a column to each result line logged by my trial reporting the value that was passed after id= in the URL.
