<head runat="server">
    <script src="gen_lib.js" type="text/javascript"></script> //call this javascript file
</head>
<body onload="Init()"> //call this function to display Messages on the form
<form id="form1" runat="server">
    <ajaxToolkit:ToolkitScriptManager runat="server" ID="ScriptManager1" ScriptMode=Release />
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server" UpdateMode="Always">
    <ContentTemplate>
    <asp:Label ID="status_label" runat="server" CssClass="note_item"></asp:Label>  //the message displayed in 'status_label' won't flash at all
 
<br/>
    <asp:Button ID="btnSave" runat="server" Text="Save"   OnClick="btnSave_Click" />
</ContentTemplate>
   
 
    </asp:UpdatePanel>
    </form>
</body>
 
--------------------------------
protected void btnSave_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        SetStatus("My Details saved.");
    }
 
private void SetStatus(string msg)
    {
      status_label.Text="<input type=\"hidden\" id=\"flash_on\" value=\"true\">"+msg;
      
    }
 
--------------------------------
in my gen_lib.js file:
function Init()
{
  var status, exec_elem, ro_elems, ro_elem, objs, i, menu_id;
 
  //alert("Init...");
  status=document.all.status_label;
  if (status!=null && document.all.flash_on!=null)
  {
    if (status!=null && status.innerText!="" && document.all.flash_on.value=="true")
    {
      Init_Flash("#ffffff", "#00dd00", status);
    }
    if (status!=null && status.innerText!="" && document.all.flash_on.value=="error")
    {
      Init_Flash("#ffffff", "#ff0000", status);
    }
    if (status!=null && status.innerText!="" && document.all.flash_on.value=="warning")
    {
      Init_Flash("#ffffff", "#999900", status);
    }
    document.all.flash_on.value="false";
  }
    //do some other flash job......
}

Just try this...

1. Give reference to the js file (if you are using it) from scriptmanager as

    <asp:ScriptManager ID="scpMgr" runat="server">
                             <Scripts>
                                  <asp:ScriptReference Path="js/MyScriptfile.js" />
                            </Scripts>
  </asp:ScriptManager>

2. And to call it from your code behind


                     ScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptBlock(Me, GetType(Page), "OpenWindow", "fnOpenWindow('myMsg');", True)
 

This is to call javascript function from code behind.
