I have a variable I have set using client side javascript ..

when I open another window, is there any way I can set a server side vbscript variable from that javascript variable?

i'm using iframes when i load the asp pages, so i could access that variable in javascript like this:


but can I somehow take that variable and assign it to a vbscript variable?

There is basically two ways of sending values from the client side to the server side, either in the query string, or in a form.

Query string:

---javascript on first page---
var value=42;'Page2.asp?Param='+value,'_blank');



---first page---
<form name="TestForm" action="Page2.asp">
<input type="hidden" name="HiddenField" value="">

well, i understand how those two work, but it didn't provide the results i wanted ..

there is a 3rd option for passing variables from javascript to vbscript ... cookies.  i used that.
