The title says it all. Well, if it's not possible, can I pass the javascript 3-d array into a  Coldfusion variable(array)? The computation must be on the client side so I cant really set the results directly into ColdFusion

Have you thought about setting a cookie on the originating page with the three-dimensional array, and then retrieving the cookie on the following page?

Coldfusion is executed and completed on the server side.  The result of the execution is then sent to the client browser, where html and javascript are written out.  Then, and only then, will javascript code have the ability to function.  As you can see, there is no way, on the current page, that you can communicate between coldfusion and javascript.

You can, however, potentially pass a value in the url to a new (or the same) coldfusion page using javascript.  This way, coldfusion could utilize this variable and do things with it.

You, however, are trying to use a 3-D array, and there is no efficient way you can pass this through the url.

Hope this helps...

I just found out the most of my intended users turn off their browser's cookie capability so CLFLAVA's suggestion wont be necessary.
