I dont know what I am doing wrong, in the jquery it looks fine and I had a alert(data) i see everything going to the server side page, but the response is undefined, any way this is client side code and server side code:

Client side:
            $("#listingerrorSnd").click(function () {
                   var GenName = document.getElementById("<%: anonName.ClientID %>").value;
                   var fromEmail = document.getElementById("<%: anonEmail.ClientID %>").value;
                   var GenSubject = document.getElementById("<%: typeErr.ClientID %>").value;
                   var GenMsg = document.getElementById("<%: TMNmsg.ClientID %>").value;
                   var Esname = document.getElementById("<%: escortName.ClientID %>").value;
                   var data = "{'name': '" + GenName + "', 'fromEmail': '" +
                               fromEmail + "','subject': '" + GenSubject + "','msg': '" + GenMsg + "'}";
                //,'EscortName':" + Esname +
              type: "POST",
              url: "../serv.aspx/SendEsError",
              cache: false,
              data: JSON.stringify(data),
              contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
              dataType: "json",
              success: function (r) {
                  //if(r.length > 0)
                  //    // do something
                  //    console.log(r.data);
                  //              console.log("no result");
                  //complete: function (transport) {
                  // for testing purposes
                  // $('#formcontainer').hide().html('<h1>The status is: ' + transport.status + '</h1>').fadeIn(800);
                  //if (transport.status == 200) {
                  //$('#listingerrorsntmsg').html('<br /><br /><blockquote>Thank you <strong>' + GenName + '</strong> the report has been sent to TMN and we will look into it ASAP to fix any errors with <strong>' + Esname + 's</strong> listing. ' + r.d)
              error: function (data, status, error) {
                  //$("#errorDiv").html('error occured: ' + error + '<br /><br />');
                  $('#formcontainer').hide().html('<h1><span>Please try again later ' + GenName + '</span></h1>').fadeIn(1500);
                  //else {
                      //alert("Please try again later");
                      //$('#formcontainer').hide().html('<h1><span>Please try again later ' + GenName + '</span></h1>').fadeIn(1500);
                 // }

Open in new window

Server side:

    Public Shared Function SendEsError(ByVal GenName As String, ByVal fromEmail As String, ByVal GenSubject As String, ByVal GenMsg As String, ByVal EsName As String) As String

        Return "Hello " & GenName & DateTime.Now.ToString()

    End Function
