Hi

I have written an asp page in Jscript with a database that all works fine.

However I have some buttons that call javascript functions, which basically builds a list of the links that have been clicked on that page, with the data stored in a string.

How can I access that variable from with in the asp code, so that I can display that variable on the page.
It gives me this error, where test is a string variable :

Error Type:
Microsoft JScript runtime (0x800A1391)
'test' is undefined
/asp/database/validate.asp, line 85


in response to asp code :

%>testing :<% test %><%


Thanks

Phil

The javascript you are using is client side and doesn't come back to the server side asp processing.  What I would do is set up a hidden input box where I would store the value of the javascript.  This value can then be picked up by the ASP request object.

In HTML...  

<form ID="frmInput" Name="frmInput">
<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME=Hbox ID=Hbox value="NOTHING">
</form>

In JavaScript...

document.forms['frmInput'].Hbox.value='The value you want in the box';

In JScript...

Request("Hbox")
