JavaScript dynamically assigned properties don't maintain their state after postback

I have a table with bunch of checkboxes. When i click on the checkbox, i use JavaScript to change the table's background color. When i press the update button, all background properties comes with their default values. Is there any way i can prevent these properties being reset to their default values?

Thanks,

do you have these javascript's in functions?  you can create one function that calls each function to check all of these properties, and set them appropriately.  then you call this function in the body onload attribute.  if you would like help, please paste the javascript code you are using.

the javascript is simple. It change the table's cell backgroung color from red to blue or vice versa. Howevere, what happens after posting back is that the background color returns to its original value.
I have thought of many ways of how to go around this problem but what i am really looking for is a solution that doesnt involve extra coding.
If there is any way to associate my viewstate with table's cell properties so that everytime i postback, the viewstate will maintain the table's background color.

function ToggleList(ListId, link)

    if(childList==null)
        return;

    if(childList!=null && childList.style.display == "none")
    {
        refImg.src = "images/gif/minus.gif";
        childList.style.display = "block";
    }
    else
    {
        refImg.src = "images/gif/plus.gif";
        childList.style.display = "none";

the only way that i know how to keep those colors would be to create a pageload function.

function pageload() {
  ToggleList(ListId1, link1);
  ToggleList(ListId2, link2);
  ToggleList(ListId3, link3);
  ToggleList(ListId4, link4);
  ToggleList(ListId5, link5);
}


then add it into your body tag:

<body onload="pageload()">

HI,

i hope you  did change the background color using javascript..

while changing the background color keep your change in a hidden field also!!

ie,

changing Red to Green then
update a hidden field with a value 1

and this value shld check in your body onload

<body onload="initLoad();">

function initLoad()
{
if (document.getelementByid("hiddenId").value == 1)
 {
 // set your color
}
else
{
// set another color
}

And in server code for not postback

set hiddenId.Value = 1 ; // default color

}

Regards
Renju

hi carl,
well simply put when you update some values etc of control from javascript they are not persisted on postbacks.
however what you could do is have hidden fields with runat = server, in that set values of properties etc.
like documet.all.hiddenfieldid.value = "somevalue"
then in postback you can get values of properties etc that you want to set like
hiddenfieldid.value = Request["hiddenfieldid"]
control.property.value = hidenfieldid.value

hope it helps

regards,
satish
