    I have a list of strings in the client side. I want to send them to the
    server side processing.
    I tried Page.RegisterHiddenField and then in the client wrote the list of
    strings as comma separated values. But now the problem of delimetors comes.
    (what if the strings already has ',' etc).

    Is there any other elagant way to send a list of strings to the server side?

    Try delimiting them with another char like | or ~ or # or something that you
    know is not in your strings.

    Then split them back apart like this;

    string[] myList = myFormVar.Split(new Char [] {'#'});

  3. Another alternative would be to dynamically generate the hidden fields on
    the client for as many number of entries that you have. That way the
    strings do not need to be delimited.
