Calling javascript function after server-side code completed

Experts,

I would like to show a DIV element after the server-side code has completed.  Therefore, when a user presses submit and the server-side code executes, at the bottom of the code I would like to run the client-script block, passing a string parameter which will be displayed in the DIV.

Should I consider using the icallback handler?

make sure that
1) div is hidden before making ajax call,
<div id="divId1" style="display:none"></div>
2) in the call back handler, you will get the response, put that response in the div and make that div visible
document.getElementById("divId1").innerHTML = ajax Response;

Hi,

Thanks for the info.  How do I implement the call back handler, and does a callback always occur after the server-side code completes?

check this example

Yes, if the readystate is 4, that means the client is ready with server response

Should I add the callback function highlighted here in the head section, or should this be registered in the on_load with the scriptmanager?

Callback handler is registered when the ajax call is made using the onreadystatechange, see this example
