equating javascript and ASP variables
 
Hi all,

This is a hybrid javascript/ASP page question.

Is it possible to pass data from a javascript variable into an ASP variable (VBScript) on the same page. What is the correct syntax?

I can only get it to work from ASP into javascript, not the other way round.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

The only way you can do it is to write the Javascript variables into a form / querystring which is being submitted to the ASP - you could use something like an IFrame or a New Window to make this almost invisible to the user.

Hidden form fields would be a more stable way to make the form invisible to the user.
Depending on what your needs are you could use js to put all the variables you need into one hidden form field separated by commas.
Use your asp split function to separate them on the server.
More info would help choose the best way.

Thanks all for the feedback.

Just knowing that the task involves a submission/refresh completely alters my thoughts on the matter.

Many thanks for the advice.
