I had a similar problem myself a while back,
but unfortunately I discovered that this is something that can't be done.

The vb code is compiled, and only HTML is sent to the client's browser (along with the javascript).

This means that the javascript code cannot 'see' the vb code, and therefore cannot call any functions defined by vb code.
Correct, can't be done - without resorting to tricks:

What you can do however is have the Javascript call other asp-pages on your server with parameters, i.e. from page1.aspx, have the javascript redirect to "page2.aspx?item=newvalue" where newvalue is generated in the javascript (instead of redirecting you could also tell give the URL as the source of a picture, etc). This way you asp-script get's the feedback from your javascript. If you are passing things back and forth it will be a slow (and error prone) way, however...

This is done often with statistic-programs that want to know things from the client like browser type, display size, etc.

Hi cluster, any luck so far or did we get it right :))?
