MsgBox Permission denied

Why do I get the following error when I try to put a message box in an ASP?  Is there a way to avoid this? ie -
MyVar = MsgBox("Do you want to delete this message?", 49, "Delete Prompt")

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0046'
Permission denied: 'MsgBox'

You are trying to get the server to display a msgbox to the client which is impossible.

Try calling a server function which returns a value to the client and then rom the client side script display a messagebox.
