how to get value from client side script Prompt window to a session var in .net

hi guyz,

i hav a problem with getting a value from a client-side inputbox to a session var in .net.
is this possible?
however, when i click submit button this is the code that's triggered.
dim sb as New System.Text.StringBuilder
sb.append("<script language=" & """" & "vbscript" & """" & ">")

sb.append("do while xLate =" & """" & """")
'//prompt window, value passed to xLate var
sb.append("xlate=inputBox(" & """" & "Please Enter Reason for Being Late" & """" & ")")
'// this is the part that i dynamically create an inputbox type=hidden ang get
'// the value from Prompt dialog box.
sb.append("document.write(" & """" & "<input type=hidden name=leyt id=leyt value='" & """" & "& xLate &" & """" & "'>" & """" & ")")
'// is there a way i can also dynamically write a session var that will hold the value of xLate var?????


dim scriptString as string

scriptString += "<"
scriptString += "/"
scriptString += "script>"


RegisterClientScriptBlock("anything", sb.ToString())
thanx for the help!!!

Once the prompt has a value, resubmit the form and use the Request.Form property to get the value of "leyt".

ok sorry.... this script was Fired upon form submission, it dynamically writes this.

so instead of putting the value in a textbox, i would like to capture it via session var.
document.form1.TextBox.value = inputbox("kdjfdf") '// doesn't work.. :( when written dynamically.

I've just thrown a test page together and it works (see below), so you can assign a value to a textbox and pass it back to the server. (Actually this is what ASP.NET does to pass back the EventTarget and EventArgument values)
<%@ Page Language="C#" ContentType="text/html" ResponseEncoding="iso-8859-1" %>

<script runat="server">
protected void Button_Click(Object Src, EventArgs E){
lbl1.Text = tb1.Text;
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<script language="JavaScript">
function test () { document.all [ "<%= tb1.UniqueID %>" ].value = prompt("where are you going today?",""); }
<form runat="server" onsubmit="test();">
<asp:textbox ID="tb1" runat="server" />
<asp:button runat="server" Text="Click Me!" OnClick="Button_Click" />
<asp:label ID="lbl1" runat="server" />
So all you need to do now is assign the value to a Session variable, rather than the Label.

Getting ListBox values added with client-side script
Greetings, I have two listboxes that I am using client-side script to move items between (on a user control placed on child form using a master page, if any of this matters). When the form posts back, the lists always have whatever items they started out with, regardless of changes made client-side. I've tried turning ViewState off for these controls. Same result. I've tried getting the values directly via: string[] s1 = Request.Form.GetValues(MyList.ClientID);andstring[] s1 = Request.Form.GetValues(MyList.UniqueID);andstring s1 = Request.Form[MyList.ClientID];andstring s1 = Request.F...
