How to capture browser type by form submission in ASP

I'd like to capture the type of the browser of the user when they submit the form. Is there a way I can put some ASP code into a hidden field in the form? Or any other solution would be great; I just want to store the browser info into my access database field. Thanks for your help.

You can store above information on button click and store in hidden field.

Call the javascript function.
<script type="text/javascript">
//Browser Name
function BrowType()
{
	document.form1.hiddenfield.value = navigator.appName;

	//you can use other values as well
	//document.write("Browser Version: " + navigator.appVersion);
	//document.write("Cookies Enabled: " + navigator.cookieEnabled);
	//document.write("Platform: " + navigator.platform);
	//document.write("User-agent header: " + navigator.userAgent);
}	
</script>

Thank you, this is useful. But how could I just capture in my database field just the short info, for example:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)
