When user clicks submit button I display a message like "Changes saved succefsully". I would like this to be :
1) either gone after 3 seconds
2) when the user clicks on submit again, on client side before post back happens, I want this label to be hidden (so that when the error message shows on a required field validator the success messgae is still not visible from previous click. Please help. Thanks

You can clear that message on event "OnClientClick" of the submit button.
function ClearMessage()
                var btn=document.getElementById('<%=b1.ClientID%>');
                 btn.value=" ";

<asp:Button id="b1" Text="Submit" runat="server" OnClientClick="ClearMessage()" />

$("#<%= button.ClientID %>").click(function() {
window.setInterval(clear, 3000);

function clear() {
$("#<%= lbl.ClientID %>").text("");
