how to show return message on label

I have a jq grid where in that i have a drop-down with two options when ever i select anything and click on enter it should show a message in a label that data is updated.

The logic is already handling in ashx handler.

Ashx handler code

public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
HttpRequest request = context.Request;
HttpResponse response = context.Response;

System.Collections.Specialized.NameValueCollection forms = context.Request.Form;
string strOperation = forms.Get("oper");


In the update method -- 

if (forms["oper"].ToString() == "edit")

returnvalue = "Record Updated successfully";


Now we need to pass this return value to aspx page when ever record is updated..

In aspx page

<asp:Label ID="lblMessage" runat="server" ForeColor="##"></asp:Label>

function onEnterrowdetails() {
$('#<%=lblMessage.ClientID%>').html("Data Updated......");
return true;

but not getting message..any help plz how to pass the return value to this page?

I used .text() property still its not showing do we need to make any changes?

$('#<%=lblMessage.ClientID%>').text("Data Updated......");

Thank you Fei Han for response.

I am trying to use this code in one of links which you provided

var myEditOptions = {
        keys: true,
        oneditfunc: function (rowid) {
            alert("row with rowid=" + rowid + " is editing.");
        aftersavefunc: function (rowid, response, options) {
            alert("row with rowid=" + rowid + " is successfuly modified.");

$('#list1').jqGrid('inlineNav','#pager1', {
    addtext: "Add",
    edittext: "Edit",
    savetext: "Save",
    canceltext: "Cancel",                       
    addParams: { 
        position: "afterSelected",
        addRowParams: myEditOptions
    addedrow: "last",
    editParams: myEditOptions

The below is my aspx code where should i keep the above code in my page

<script type="text/javascript">
        $(function() {
                url: 'Handler.ashx',
                datatype: 'json',
                height: 250,
                colNames:bla bla...
colmodel ------
 caseSensitive: false,
                rownumbers: true,
                reloadAfterSubmit: true,
                width: 1024,
                gridComplete: function() {
        jsonReader: {
                    repeatitems: false
                caption: '-------',
                editurl: 'Handler.ashx',
          onSelectRow: function(id) {

 $("#list").jqGrid('navGrid', '#pager',
                            edit: false,
                            add: false,
                            del: false,
                            search: true,
                            searchtext: "Search",
                            reloadAfterSubmit: true,
                            cloneToTop: true,
                            overlay: false,
                            beforeRefresh: function() {
                                $("#list").setGridParam({ datatype: 'json', page: 1 }).trigger('reloadGrid');
 $("#list").jqGrid('editRow', {

                aftersavefunc: function() {


 function onEnterrowdetails() {
            $('#<%=lblMessage.ClientID%>').text("data update");
            return true;
