Default Divs, Gridviews and Javascript != fun


I have the following gridview


and I want to have a div pop up next to the icon when they click on the little search icon (next to the costcode)
like this -> http://i10.tinypic.com/48yybdy.gif

I have gotten this far.. but the problem is that When I click Select, Search or Clear, it causes a postback, and when the page reloads, the DIV moves back to its original position, or if i set it by default to be invisible, then it disappears.

Any suggestions on how I could get this done?

Basically, I want it to:

1) When i hit select, copy the values to the right fields, and then disappear. (it does this if its set to invisible by default).
2) When i hit search or clear, i want it to modify the filter settings for the sqldatasource, and keep the div where it is.

Maybe i need to use state variables or something and make the page load the appropriate java script based on these variables. Apparently I can set the startupscript from inside the page_load code in the code behind.

Ok i figured it out.

You cant execute javascript from code behind (except at startup in pageload - you can use RegisterStartupScript), and you cant update codebehind variables from javascript, so.. you need to find a common ground. Cookies.

Basically whenever i moved the div, i updated a cookie to say whether or not its visible and its position. then on page load, if it was a postback, i'd read the cookie, and then if it was visible, i would use the RegisterStartupScript to register my function to show the searchpanel and pass it the top and left from the cookie too.

the end.
