nedd popup box with buttons and possibility to choose from the buttons

i'm using a frameset and outlines.
one outline starts a new frameset.

now i want not the frameset started immediately.
instaed of this, i'd like to get a popup box (or something similar) asking: do you accept the agreement yes/no).

in case yes, the frameset should open, like today.
in case no, a predefined page, form ... should be opened.

If it's a copy/paste solution you're looking for Harald:

Here's what to do:
First, I suppose you have a page, where you embedded the outline, right ?
In this page, in the JS Header put the following function:

function agree()
    {
    // Get the path to the database root to create a URL reference
    var pathname = window.location.pathname;
    filename = pathname.substring(0,(pathnmae.lastIndexOf('.nsf')+4));
    // Ask for confirmation. The \n inserts a new line in the text
    var yesNo=window.confirm("Do you agree?\nClik OK to continue, Cancel to abort');
    if (yesNo==true)
        // User confirmed
        parent.location.href=filename+"/Frameset1?OpenFrameSet"
    else
        // User disagrees
        parent.location.href=filename+"/Frameset2?OpenFrameSet";
    }

This function will check the user's answer and open Frameset1 in the current window if the user agrees and open Frameset2 in the current window if the user disagrees.
The parent.location.href= refers to the current window, being the parent of the frame where your outline is located in.

Now in your outline entry all you need to do is to use the following :
Type : URL
Value : Computed, click on the @ to enter the formula :
    "JavaScript:agree()"

Now when you click your outline entry, a simple confirmation box will be displayed and depending on the selection of the user, the correct frameset will be opened.

Regards,
JM

There is a javascipt 'Prompt' function which can act like that.

Or, Use window.open command to open th url for the agreement document and then provide two buttons as accept or cancel and pass those values to the parent document.

Ok. Here you go

This will open a form called Test.( and this will be in host window)
window.open("Test?Openform");

This will go into the Accept button of the opened window.
window.close();
window.opener.location.href = "Frameset Name"

For the outline entry class, use url content and the formula as

"javascript:window.open(\'Test?Openform\'); history.go(-1)"

hi,

my intention was to get a popup box/window where i can place a little text "do you agree?" and 2 buttons yes/no.
depending on the selection, 2 different framsets should be loaded/displayed.

maybe i'm wrong, buut i don't see in your suggestion any kind of button/popup.

in case we have a misunderstanding here, i suggest to delete the question due to my selfmade page (even if it's not that good looking like i wanted it).

if i could past a graphic here, i'd paste thew kind of popup i think of.

Then use , function prompt

window.open opens a html page or any url or may be a form for that fact. And the opened page would be a agreement, with two buttons accept and cancel.

Accept will have the code to close the agreement and open the desired frameset.

Cancel will simply close the agreement.

If you are looking for some kind of msgbox , with yes/no option then use javascript function, confirm( message)

is it clear now !!!
