Here is a simple working demonstration for you:

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function ()
            $('#btGet').click(function ()
                var value = $('#hiddenfield1').val();

            $('#btSet').click(function ()
                var value = $('#textbox1').val();
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:HiddenField ID="hiddenfield1" runat="server" Value="ABCD" />
        <span>Hidden Field 1:</span>
        <asp:TextBox ID="textbox1" runat="server" Text="1234" />
        <asp:Button ID="btGet" runat="server" Text="Get" />
        <asp:Button ID="btSet" runat="server" Text="Set" />
