Why Stack Overflow with Confirm Box

I got stack overflow error when I implement a confirm box.  I don't know how to fix it.  Here is my code:

function confirm() {
  if(confirm('Are you sure to continue?')){
    document.forms[0].submit();
  }
  else{
    return false;
  }
}

<form name="form1" method="Post" action="create_inspection.jsp" onsubmit="return validate()">

<input type="Button" name="Submit" value="Enter Inspection" onClick="confirm()">
</form>

This form and javascript is in jsp create_inspection.jsp.  If user confirm the action, the request will be sent to the same page for database insert; otherwise, user stay with the page without submitting the form.

If I get rid of the confirm, everything is good. But if I add the confirm box, I got the stack overflow error.

You did overwritten the confirm() method with your function.
Cahnge it to this:

function doConfirm() {
  if(confirm('Are you sure to continue?')){
   document.forms[0].submit();
 }
 else{
   return false;
 }
}

<form name="form1" method="Post" action="create_inspection.jsp" onsubmit="return validate()">

<input type="Button" name="Submit" value="Enter Inspection" onClick="doConfirm()">
</form>

try changing the your function name to something else other than confirm(), such as
function submitConfirm()
{......}

Hello qding,

do you confirm that upper comments solved your problem?
Or do you have also work overflow :)
