<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.
