asp.net get value from args on postback from javascript, _DoPostBackWithOptions

I am building a list of controls in code behind and putting an id# in a hyperlink.
an HTML hyperlink, not building asp.net controls. (only because I cant figure that out )
I can get it to postback to a button but can't get a value from the postback agument.

 Protected Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
'get arg and do something.

end sub

I tried this but cant get the values when the post back happens - it goes to the button1:
<a href="#" onclick="j WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions('button1','12', true, &quot;&quot;, &quot;&quot;, false, false))"   /><br />

<a href="#" onclick="j WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions('button1','44', true, &quot;&quot;, &quot;&quot;, false, false))"   />


I need to list  values - somehow - and when clicking it, it go to code behind with the value of the line.

not wanting to use a gridview.

I have loaded jquery and jquery moble
I'm using vb,net too

thanks, any comments are appreciated.

You should use ___doPostBack(), check:
http://www.codedigest.com/Articles/ASPNET/320_Doing_or_Raising_Postback_using___doPostBack()_function_from_Javascript_in_AspNet.aspx

In your case the markup will be as follows:
<a href="#" onclick=""javascript:__doPostBack('button1','44')">LinkButton</a>

Open in new window


in your VB code you can get the control id using ('button1')
Request.Params.Get("__EVENTTARGET")
and the argument('44')
Request.Params.Get("__EVENTARGUMENT")

and then add some if logic to call the button handler as a new method to avoid using event args
