Get values with ASP.NET that was set by Java

Hi all!
   I'm using Infragistics' UltraWebGrid.  With this grid, I'm changing the backcolor of a cell (DarkBlue) when I click it.  If I click on it again, the backcolor is restored to it's original color (White); basically toggling the BgColor with each click.  The kicker is I'm accomplishing this with client-side events with Java to eliminate unnecessary postbacks.
   I've got an OK button on this page, as well.  When I click it, I wan't to be able to determine which cells are blue, and which are white.  The problem is, when I attempt to get the colors, nothing is returned (Color [Empty]).  I asked Infragistics about this and I was told that, because I'm setting the values of the cells with Java, ASP.NET cannot see the colors because they're set on the client and not the server.
  Question:  Is there a way or technique I can use to pass these grid color to ASP.NET for validation?

function UltraWebGrid1_CellClickHandler(gridName, cellId, button){
      var cell=igtbl_getCellById(cellId);

maybe u can try to use hidden variable

function UltraWebGrid1_CellClickHandler(gridName, cellId, button){
     var cell=igtbl_getCellById(cellId);
             document.getElementById("hColor").value = "white";
        document.getElementById("hColor").value = "blue";

<input type=hidden runat=server id=hColor />

but make sure the ID of the hidden control is really "hColor" or not, because if u're using webusercontrol, the id will be "WebUserControl1_hColor"
u can check this by "view source"

then in your code behind, u can get the value from hColor
string result = hColor.Value;

Well, this answer did answer my question.  I was hoping for something more ASP.NET-centric, but it doesn't look like there is such a solution.

Thanks for your help, orbulat!
