Default posting back javascript data


  I have a webpage that fires off a JavaScript function. This
  function can create a javascript array of strings ( ie
  a simple list).

  When a postback event is then fired - is it possible to send
  back this javascript data so that I can pick it up on the
  server side ? If so - how ? Or have I gone off track with the
  'best practice' on design and is there a more professional way ?

can you ignore javascript?I think here you can work with server-side scripts much easier.

You'll need to store the data in a form field. That's the way to get data back to the server when a postback occurs. Put the data in a hidden form field that you can access in the server side code. Keep in mind that you'll have to change the data into a simple string. So if you have an array of values, you'll need to change it into somelike like a character separated list that you'll then need to change back.
