I have a javascript that returns a value of true or false.  In my code behind in need to run the javascript and get a return value.  but when i try and use
if ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(Me.GetType(), "ClientScript", "checkCreditCard ('" & ddCardType.SelectedValue & "' , '" & txtCardNo.Text & "') ", True) then

I get message that this doesnt return a value.  Any ideas?

thank you

in your dropdown/selectbox use : ddCardType

<asp:HiddenField runat="server" ID="HiddenField1" />
<asp:DropDownList runat="server" ID="ddCardType" onchange="document.getElementByid('<%= HiddenField1.ClientID %>').value = this.value;">

Open in new window


On the server side you will be able to read the value of the asp:HiddenField

I took a different approach.  I used the onchange event to call the function, then get the elements for ddcardtype and txtcardno, test the card and return value true or false back to hiddenfield.  So it was a combo of both suggestions that got me there.
thanks
