while, working with my code, i am working on showing a message and hiding it after 5 seconds, but due to some reason, its is not working, i am going nuts here and its late now

here is my code snippet:

$("#updatefeedback").bind("click",function(){
            var data = $("form").serialize();
            $.post('sbtfeedback.cfm',data, function(data) {
                  $("#feedback_response").html(data).text()
            });
      });

my server-side file returns like this

<cfif len('FORM.sbname') IS 0>
    Error! Please Provide Your Name
    <cfelseif len('FORM.sbemail') IS 0>
    Error! Please Provide Your Email
    <cfelseif isDefined('FORM.sbcomments')>
    Error! Please provide Some Comments
<cfelse>
Cool! We did it
</cfif>

so minifying all tasks, i am actually returning the code rather than some kind of variable

the issue i am facing is, i am able to show a message but unable to hide it, don no why, what i m missing

what about :
$("#updatefeedback").bind("click",function(){
            var data = $("form").serialize();
            $.post('sbtfeedback.cfm',data, function(data) {
                  $("#feedback_response").html(data).text();
                  setTimeout(function() { $("#feedback_response").fadeOut("fast"); }, 5000);
            });
      });

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

If you want replace .fadeIn("fast") by show();
$("#updatefeedback").bind("click",function(){
            var data = $("form").serialize();
            $.post('sbtfeedback.cfm',data, function(data) {
                  $("#feedback_response").html(data).text();
                  $("#feedback_response").fadeIn("fast");
                  setTimeout(function() { $("#feedback_response").fadeOut("fast"); }, 5000);
            });
      });

onSendBefore is between line 2 and 3
oncomplete is on line 4

if you really need to do something inside the ajax process with jQuery.post use jquery.ajaxsetup & co : http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajaxSetup/
