display javascript value in asp.net label from response

trying to use asp.net label to display response value in javascript, but it does not show up in asp.net label in form,

    function calcRoute() {

        var start = document.getElementById('startvalue').value;
        var end = document.getElementById('endvalue').value;
        var request = {
            origin: start,
            destination: end,
            travelMode: google.maps.DirectionsTravelMode.DRIVING
        directionsService.route(request, function (response, status) {
            if (status == google.maps.DirectionsStatus.OK) {

                var label = document.getElementById("lbldistance");
                label.text = response.routes[0].legs[0].distance.text;

Without seeing your code, my guess is you are using the asp.net ID which isn't the same as the DOM id.


var label = document.getElementById("lbldistance");

Should most likely be

var label = document.getElementById("<%=lbldistance.ClientID%>");

And you'll also be needing to access the DOM version of the label text, which in this case is innerHTML e.g.

label.innerHTML =  {your response code};
