Using asp.net variables in javascript

I am trying to set an array string programatically using asp.net
then inserting the array string into a javascript statement.

To me, the error message indicates that the javascript is run first by the server, and
then the asp.net webpage code. That seems backwards to me. I thought the server
ran my asp.net webpage code first, enabling me to set variables, which I can then
insert into javascript code.

What am I doing wrong ?


Here is the error I get:
Error message: Name 'jARY_AdsTop_Homepage_path99' is not declared.
Line 25:       var jARY_AdsTop_Homepage_path = [<%=jARY_AdsTop_Homepage_path99%>];

Here is the webpage code:
<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="test_ad_rotation.aspx.vb" Inherits="wikiVB.test_ad_rotation" %>


<%
Dim jARY_AdsTop_Homepage_path99 As String = "folder1/,folder2/"
Dim jARY_AdsTop_Homepage_url99 As String = "http://www.google.com,http://www.google.com"
%>

      //alert("jARY_AdsTop_Homepage_url = " + jARY_AdsTop_Homepage_url);
