How to set web user control property from client side ?


I've created a web user control and it has some property.

    public partial class MyControl: System.Web.UI.UserControl
        string _PropertyA;

        public string PropertyA
            get { return _PropertyA; }
            set { _PropertyA= value; }

 Is there a way to set this property from client side,  similar to the way i do it on server side (e.g MyControl.PropertyA =...)?

this is a solution, but not the nicest one :  

<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="WebUserControl.ascx.cs"
    Inherits="WebUserControl" %>

<script runat="server">
    public void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptInclude(GetType(), "wuc", "wuc.js");

    public string PropertyA
        get { return __PropertyA.Value; }
        set { __PropertyA.Value = value; }

    protected void Page_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(GetType(), "wuc_pa", string.Format("WUC.register('{0}');", ClientID), true);
        Page.ClientScript.RegisterOnSubmitStatement(GetType(), "wuc_submit", "WUC.submit();");

<span id="<%= ClientID %>">
    <asp:HiddenField ID="__PropertyA" runat="server" />


var __WUC = function()
    this._array = new Array();
__WUC.prototype.register = function(elementID) 
    var e = document.getElementById(elementID);
    e.PropertyA = document.getElementById(elementID + "___PropertyA").value;
__WUC.prototype.submit = function()
    for(var i = 0; i < this._array.length; i++)
        document.getElementById(this._array[i].id + "___PropertyA").value = this._array[i].PropertyA;
var WUC = new __WUC();
and in your jscript function
document.getElementById("MyControl").PropertyA = "another value";
Something using javascript methods - get_propertyA(), set_propertyA(e) - is probably better, you should post on Client Side Web Development forum.

use Ajax if u dont want a complete set a server variable u need to go to the server.....becoz if u set it at the client and dont send a post back...the value is not changed effectively.also changing at the browser involves javascript......which means browser compatibilty ......disabled scripts etc etc.....and u dont wanna go there!!
