Get value from JavaScript set label

I have a JavaScript which sets the innerHTML attrubute of a asp:Label like this: 

"document.getElementById(\"" + lbl.ClientID + "\").innerHTML = 'something....';");

But on postback I can't retrieve the value by calling lbl.Text as it's to save the javascript set value between postbacks?

It should option is using "Session variable". Populate session variable in JS and read between postbacks.

 "Hidden Field" also a good opion.., Populate hiddenfield in JS and read from code-behind.. 

<input id="Hidden1" type="hidden" runat="server" />

Hi mm8,

Please refer the following code to solve your problem,

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<script runat="server">

    protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        lblMessage.Text = hdText.Value;

<html xmlns="">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title>Label Demo</title>

    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    function setValue()
        document.getElementById("lblMessage").innerHTML ="I Love ASP.NET !";  
        document.getElementById("hdText").value = document.getElementById("lblMessage").innerHTML;  

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:Label ID="lblMessage" runat="server" Text="Demo"></asp:Label>
        <asp:Button ID="btnSubmit"
            runat="server" Text="Submit" OnClientClick="setValue();" 
            onclick="btnSubmit_Click" />
        <asp:HiddenField ID="hdText" runat="server" />

It looks to me that you are mixing code behind added javascript rather than run time javascript. The time that the script runs will decide the final value. I coud be wrong on this next one, but I believe that setting the value of an asp label would be document.getElementById('lblClientId').value = "something...."


Hope that helps. If not then post some more of your code
