As I said in my previous post, you can't access the modified Value of the XmlHttpPanel, because the value remains unchanged on the client-side. You can either send the value within the HTML received from the WebService or Callback, or use a hidden field (like you have done at the moment) and retrieve the value in the OnClientResponseEnding event of the XmlHttpPanel.
