clear asp.net validation control using javascript

I've got some validation controls on my asp.net page and they seem to be working fine to do their initial validation.  However, after the page does a postback, some of the validation controls are triggered and display their error messages even though the input in the textboxes was valid before the postback.  So I enter information and click the submit button and everything submits fine.  The page posts back and I have it set up to place all of the information back into the same text boxes, but when the page posts back I'm getting the validation error messages.  I'm looking for a way to clear out those validation messages initially so they don't display when the page loads, however, I don't want to make it so the error messages won't be displayed if the user changes the input to invalid data.

Is there a way to do this with javascript?  Like maybe embed a script at the bottom of the page that will run last and clear out those validation messages?

How are you doing the postback?

If its by a control other than the submit button you can set causesvalidation = "false"

I would help if you posted some code.
