    hi all!

    i have an html page, with jscript inside. some variables, some of them
    multidimensional arrays. i need to send this information, which can be
    changed by the user, to an asp file. the only way i could think of, is
    putting it inside hidden box and sending the form. is there any more
    elegant way ?

    thanks in advance,

    using forms is as "elegant" as any in my view.

    If you want to send the information without causing a page reload, you
    could use the XMLHttpRequest() object (and it's Win IE equivalent

    thanks for the fast reply : ) do you happen to know if there is some
    size limit on information sent with forms ?

    Yes, as long as the forms method = GET, most browsers introduce
    a limit.

    It varies from browser to browser, and is in the range of
    approx. 1 to 4 Kilobytes.

    To avoid it, POST your forms instead.
