Hi, I need to get the Navigator.AppName in the code behind

I have tried creating a hidden input variable and setting it to the navigator.appname and then doing a response.write in the code behind, but nothing works. Please help

//ASP
<input type="hidden" name="bt" id="bt" value="" runat="server">

      <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
      
      var bt
      bt = document.getElementById("NavigationR_bt");
      bt.value = window.navigator.appName.toLowerCase();

      </script>
**************************
//Code Behind
//nothing gets printed
Response.Write("hello" & bt.Value & "hello");

value = Request.ServerVariables("Variable Name")
