How to get a variable to Runatserver from Client Side Javascript

Here is a snippet of the Javascript Code

if (VarNotCompleted == "YES")

{document.getElementById("RatingLabel").innerHTML="Not Completed"}
It works fine but when I want to take the contents of the rating label back to the database it doesn't work. I am assuming the probem is that the Javascript is client side and nothing is registering at the server
How to I get the Javascript generated contents of Rating Label back to the server
This is the label
<asp:Label id="RatingLabel" runat="server"></asp:Label>
Any ideas

u cannot get label values to server side.

the label data is not stored in viewstate.
so try like this.
place the label value in a hidden variable with runat=server.
u can get the value even if the postback is done as the hidden varible value is stored in viewstate.
i think this cheaky but works for u.

Thanks for replying. Problem solved.

For other Learners the javascript code now is
if (VarNotCompleted == "YES")

{document.getElementById("RatingLabel").innerHTML="Not Completed";
document.getElementById('AAARating').value = "Not Completed"}
document.getElementById('AAARating').value = VarRating;}

Under the Form Tag is
<input id="AAARating" type="hidden" name="AAARating" runat="server">

Getting my client-side variable over to server-side
Ok so I have looked at a few posts on this subject and I can't quite figure out how to apply the idea to what I am doing here.
