Execute VB.NET Function from JavaScript Function

Execute VB.NET Function from JavaScript Function

(OP)
I'm trying to build a javascript function which executes an existing vb.net function in the current page.  I can't find any examples of how to do this, so I'm totally stuck.  Could someone please give me some advise on how to accomplish this?

CODE

<script language="JavaScript">
  window.onbeforeunload = BackToHTTP;
  function BackToHTTP()
  {
    RUN VB.NET FUNCTION HERE
  }
</script>

Specifically, I'm trying run a function when the user exits the current webpage, using the preexisting javascript onbeforeunload function.

Thanks.

RE: Execute VB.NET Function from JavaScript Function

   You can't do that.  JavaScript is client side code.  You cannot invoke server side code from there.

All of the functions he uses on the page call server-side code without ever posting back.

Within Framework 2.0, there's also the concept of client callbacks, but it's not really as mature as some of the other third-party AJAX libraries (nor can you use it with Framework 1.*:
