Hi,

I have a problem where I need to read the current value of a session variable, do some calculations in the client side javascript and then set the same session variable to a new value.  Some quick searches indicate that it can be done using some AJAX.NET library but I am already using the ASP.NET 3.5 SP1 framework and AJAX Toolkit.  Is there some way I can do this without adding the AJAX.NET library?

Thanks!

Store you session variable in a cookie (if possible) then just read and update the cookie from client side javascript without the AJAX call.

You can not set a session via Javascript. Please see this link, you will have to use page methods I think which will be possible since you are using 3.5

Assign Session value to Hidden Fileld which you can access on client side with Javascript like this
var session=document.getElementById('<%=hdnTest.ClientID%>')
