   Some text...
</div>

the only way for a variable to be open to the aspx is by having it declared as a public class level var not in the page load
to see this work do this
before this line protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
declare your variable like so
public string MyVar=string.Empty;

in your page load you try to change the value of the variable as you wish

if (!Page.IsPostBack)
    {
       MyVar = "FirstItem"
    }    
    else
    {
        MyVar = "Item"
     }

in the aspx code just type
<div lass="post" id='<%=MyVar%>'>
    some text here
    </div>

Hi webressurs,

this will not work because to use variables in aspx page the variables must be public
so you have to change a little bit your code to:

public string MyVariable;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (!Page.IsPostBack)
    {
        MyVariable = "FirstItem";
    }    
    else
    {
        MyVariable = "Item";
     }
}

and use the prajapati84 comment

Cheers!

That gives me this errormessage:
"Compiler Error Message: CS0103: The name 'MyVariable' does not exist in the current context"


This works, but is it the correct way to do it:
-----------------
ASPX
-----------------
<div class="post" id="<asp:Literal runat='server' ID='litClass' />">

-----------------
ASPX.CS
-----------------
this.litClass.Text = "firstPost";

I just tested the code and it worked fine for me without using any literals.
MyVariable' does not exist in the current context usually is thrown when you try to access a private variable or data of any kind.
make sure MyVariable is declared as public string in the class not the page load event!
