asp.net and javascript link submit

<asp:DropDownList runat="server" ID="brand">
                                                <asp:ListItem selected="True" Text="HP" Value="HP"></asp:ListItem>
                                                <asp:ListItem Text="Canon" Value="Canon"></asp:ListItem>
                                            </asp:DropDownList>



<asp:DataList Width="800px" runat="server" ID="dataListBrand" RepeatColumns="8" RepeatDirection="Vertical" >
                                            <ItemTemplate>
                                             <li>
                                             <a href="Brand.aspx?Name=<%# Eval("name") %>">
                                             <asp:Label Width="140px" runat="server" ID="repeatListItemCategory" Text='<%# Bind("name") %>'></asp:Label>                                            
                                             </a>
                                             </li>
                                            </ItemTemplate>
                                            </asp:DataList>        


 

If <a href="Brand.aspx?Name=<%# Eval("name") %>"> is clicked, it is a link then I
want to capture both values from <a href="Brand.aspx?Name=<%# Eval("name") %>"> and brand.

How can I do that?
