ASP.NET Getting the Current Page's Control from a Static Member

I am running ASP.NET 3.5.  I am trying to use AJAX calls using JQuery, so I am making some non-static methods static so that I can call them through AJAX. One of them updates a drop-down list box on the client's current page.  My understanding is that I would now first need to get the current page object from my static method and then get the control I need to update.  The question is how can I get the current web page?  I tried getting the page trhough HttpContext.Current.CurrentHandler and got null - since I am running a static method, perhaps this is expected?

The question is how I can get the current web page object from a static method?
Thank you.

you need pass a parameter to your ajax webmethod in jquery call as we can not access controls in ajax page methods
