javascript get sql data


I know this is an easy one for someone in the know, so heres the scenario:

Building a small address book/ organiser type site.
Top level of this is a list of addresses
When an address is clicked on we go to the organiser page (using the ID as a qrystring) that has an upload/ download file, todo list, pic viewer and google map with street view.
Got this all working fine, but want the map to auto centre on the address that is relevant.
the page loads with ?AutoID=X so I want to use this var to pull the address so I can geocode it. Baseing the query on this ID will guarantee only 1 record returned.
Ive tried to hold the value in a datagrid and pull it into javascript using document.getElementbyID('<%# gmaps_add %>') and entbyID('<%# gmaps_add{0} %>') but I just dont know enough to think my way out of this one,

If possible, as well as the answer Id love to understand whats happening logic wise.

Hi DaveP, you can find a nice example here> or you can get the values from the gridview in codebehind and save them in a cookie, which can be used in javascript

Nice find, the 2 associated articles were also extremely useful

Solution from the links is somewhat incomplete. Im unsure as to why (poss update to HTMLTableElement from asp2 to 3.5??), but was constantly getting 'undefined' as the response. Having played about I found that by ammending function getCellValue to
return gridCell.firstChild.nodeValue;
instead of innerText, it pulls the content correctly
I think that innerText does not work in Firefox, only IE, sorry for not mentioning that.
