HI Experts,

Need a really quick answer to the following:

I need an alert box to pop up when a form is submitted with "are you sure you want to do this?" as the message and a choice of "yes" or "no" to be presented in the form of 2 buttons. If "yes" is clicked then the form is submitted, if "no" is clicked then the form is not submitted.


Thanks,



PJORDANNA

or this,
this will call a form validation routine called validateForm() and if the data is valid will then prompt the user to confirm
<script>
function validateForm(objForm){
// data validation goes here
return true;
}

</script>
<form name="myForm" action="" method="" onSubmit="if(validateForm(this)){ return confirm('Are you sure you want to do this?\nClick Ok to continue or Cancel to stop.')} else { return false}">

<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
