How do I get my serialized data into a label or text box or other control?

I just want to get the data that I serialized using jQuery into something that I can process. I've been unsuccessful so far.

jQuery & HTML
        $(document).ready(function () {
                // code to run when the order is updated
                update: function (event, ui) {
                    // get the order of the items in the list
                    var data = $(this).sortable('serialize');
                    // pass the data back to your server for processing

            $(function () {
                // this initializes the dialog (and uses some common options that I do)
                $("#dialog").dialog({ autoOpen: false, modal: true, show: "blind", hide: "blind" });

                // next add the onclick handler
                $("#contactUs").click(function () {
                    return false;
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div runat="server" id="sortable"> </div>
    <div runat="server" id="data" class="data">
        <asp:Label ID="dataInnerHTML" runat="server" />
    <asp:Button ID="btnGetDivInnerHTML" runat="server" OnClick="btnGetDivInnerHTML_Click" />
    <a href="#" id="contactUs" runat="server">Contact Us</a>
    <div id="dialog" title="Contact form">
            appear now</p>

Open in new window

        protected void btnGetDivInnerHTML_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            string strInnerHTML = "";
            string[] strText = new string[5];

            //dataInnerHTML.Text = dataInnerHTML.Text + "_VICTORY";

            strText[0] = dataInnerHTML.Text;

Open in new window

What type of data is serialized when passed to the server?

On the server you can deserialize the string data using new System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer().Deserialize<customclass>(dataInnerHTML.Text);

Hope this helps,

@Mihai Stancescu: What is the "<customclass>" part of that call? What goes there?
