Default Javascript variable values into ASP

This sound like an easy question, but it prove more difficult than I thought.

I have some variables in JavaScript. What I want to do is grab the values from these JavaScript variables and put(assign) them into ASP VBScript variable. How would I do that? Below I have two JavaScript variables.

var FirstVal = document.form1.selList1.options.value;
var FirstValIndex = document.form1.selList1.selectedIndex;

Thank you.

You could dynamically assign hidden field values to variable values and then have JavaScript submit the form.

You can't assign JavaScript variables to ASP variables, because of the client/server difference. You have to use another way like the hidden field like Snib's or redesign the form to post back every time the user makes a change (complete server-based approach).
