how to access a string variable in the code behind into javascript

The best way would be for the code behind to save the string into a Cookie, and have the javascript retrieve it from there.

I dont totally disagree with you here, but can you take a look at my answer and explain why this would be better?

In your code behind:
protected string MyString = "This is my string";

Then, in your HTML page:
function GetMyString() {
     return <%= MyString %>

You can obviously put the snippet <%= MyString %> where ever you want to use that string. Hoe this helps!

No reason to use a function

var myString = <%= MyString %>
myString = <%= MyString %>

to place it in the global namespace

Yip, thats why I put that comment afterwards saying he could put the snippet anywhere. I just put it in a function to illustrate the point ;)

You can pass it as JSON object and retrieve it from javascript.
