i am trying to change color of the list on clicking anchor tag using jquery. On clicking the anchor tag i have called a C# function code behind.. if i give return false code in jquery like the below code the color has changed. but code behind function is not working. once i comment return false from jquery the code behind code is working but the color has not changed.

html code :
<ul class="ullist" id="navlist">

    <li id="list1"><a id="a1"  runat="server" >Active</a></li>

 <li id="list2"><a id="a2"  runat="server" >Abeyance</a></li>


Jquery Code :
$(document).ready(function () {

    $("a").click(function () {



       return false;


Did you use update panel inside your page? If so, then you need to re initialize the jquery ready function so that this event can be fired when page is being postback.
You can find a tip for this kind of issue here.

i have partially completed. i want to use jquery variable inside the id field in jquery like below.

var value="list1";
$('#list1').addclass('active); // this working fine.
but i want to use variable value instead of #list1 like
$(value).addclass('active'); // this not working

how can do that..
As per your comment, you need to prepend '#' for ID and '.' for class. You can achieve that by following:
var value="list1";
$('#' + value).addclass('active'); // this is the right way when you have dynamic ID.
