Pass javascript variable to Codebehind

Is it posible to get a value from a javascript variable and use it into visual basic code without incrusting value on any control.

Method 1

You cannot access a js-variable from codebehind without any help of a server-control.
You could redirect the page to itself and pass that value as URL-Parameter(window.location.href = window.location.href + "?value=test";). But i assume that this is not what you want because it forces a postback.
So the best way is to use a hiddenfield:

In javascript function:

<script type="text/javascript">
    function Foo(){
        var hidden=document.getElementById('hidValue');

On aspx:
<Input id="hidValue" type="hidden" runat="server" />

In code behind
Protected hidValue As HtmlControls.HtmlInputHidden

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    Dim hiddenValue = hidValue.Value
End Sub

Method 2

if possible (is available) try to assign value in java to document.cookie = javavalue and then get it from codebehind var x= document.cookie (either via webbrowser or page)
