Can anyone tell me how to send values from a javascript back to c#.net code so they can be stored in an SQL database?

I have some code that allows the user to drag a DIV layer, and what i want to do is save the positions of the DIV's after they have been used

You can do one of many things, the simplest would be to send an xmlHTTP call with the final div co-ords "behind the scenes" to C# which would in turn save the querystring to the database:
something like this:

var xmlhttp = false;
/*@cc_on @*/
/*@if (@_jscript_version >= 5)
try {
xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
} catch (e) {
try {
xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
} catch (E) {
xmlhttp = false;
@end @*/
if(!xmlhttp && typeof XMLHttpRequest!='undefined') {
xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();

function sendDivCoords() {
var sURL = "myCSharpHandlerPage.cs?coords=" + parseInt(document.getElementById("myDiv").style.left) + "," + parseInt(document.getElementById("myDiv").style.top);

xmlhttp.open("GET", sURL, true);
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {
if(xmlhttp.readyState==4) {
alert("co-ords sent to the page");

hope this concept idea helps.

Cheers for the help,

Just one other question though, where would this be called from? Am i to call the Javascript function from the html code, or is the whole section to be placed within the c# code?

Also, i'm kinda unsure as to what var type the values are sent back as.
