variable scope

Been using the GlobalVars variable structure fine within WinForm Application (any class etc.)

I have a WinForm that utilises the web browser control, and call an aspx page.

This aspx page, I wanted it to have access to the same variables (and current values) as the desktop application -- basically be seamless between desktop app and web-page app

I registered the Desktop app in the web references ok,  the code-behind scripting sees the GlobalVars class setup in Desktop application fine .. just that when running, the web-page does not work -- cannot load/create object error message.

I am making sure I have the desktop application active/running first -- I then call the WinForm to open which in turn calls the web-page to be loaded (That is hosted on web server).

Knowing this web page compiles fine and intellisence accepts this structure -- why does the page refuse to work?

Many thanks.
ASPX 
 

<body>

    <form id="form1" runat="server">

    <div>

         Agent ID ::

        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server"></asp:Label>

    </div>

    </form>

</body>
 

ASPX Code Behind
 

Using Desktop-Application;
 

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            Label1.Text = GlobalVars._fortuneAgent_ID.ToString();

        }
 

____________________________
 

Desktop Application:
 

public static class GlobalVars

    {

public static int _fortuneAgent_ID

        {

            get { return fortuneAgent_ID; }

            set { fortuneAgent_ID = value; }

        }

}

Basically, if you need to access web browser values, you will be able to access HTML Document.
For ex, Following code will read a text box value from aspx page,

private void webBrowser1_DocumentCompleted(object sender, WebBrowserDocumentCompletedEventArgs e)
        {
            HtmlDocument doc = null;

            doc = webBrowser1.Document;
            HtmlElement text = doc.GetElementById("Text1");
            MessageBox.Show(text.InnerText);
        }

I see - thats interesting :-)

Can that work both ways? inject a value from WinForm to text label in WebForm?

"text.InnerText = "Test";

when would that value be available?  instantly -- or would a page refresh be required?

assuming setup a hidden txt field to tmp store value -- move that value to an internal aspx variable and then clear down (empty) the hidden txt field value in order to preserve security of that value (in case user tries to view source code etc).

is this the process?

"text.InnerText = "Test";

how do I script this fully?

HtmlDocument doc = null;

doc = webBrowser_ClientCase.Document;
//HtmlElement text = doc.GetElementById("Label1");
//MessageBox.Show(text.InnerText);

text.InnerText = "Test";
