I would like to know whether we can have a message box with Yes and No Buttons in Javascript. I am aware of the confirm message box having OK and Cancel Buttons, but my requirements is for a message box with Yes and No buttons. I am aware that we can define the number of boxes in a message box using VBScript, but i have to give the same functionality using Javascript. Please help asap.

    You can have the confirm box (as you already know) .The other alternative might be calling a modal
    window ( that you create ) and use it.Other alternative being vbscript

    //Check this, a code posted by another expert in this forum
    <script language="JavaScript">
         function alertBox(alertMessage,height,width)
              // This stuff centers the window
              windowWidth = (width == null) ? 200 : width; // width of the new window
             windowHeight = (height == null) ? 30 : height; // height of the new window
             windowLeft = (screen.width / 2) - (windowWidth / 2); // center the window right to left
             windowTop = (screen.height / 2) - (windowHeight / 2); // center the window top to bottom
              // the values get inserted into the features parameter of the command...
              var windowLocation = "top=" + windowTop + ",left=" + windowLeft + ",height=" + windowHeight + ",width=" + windowWidth;
              alertWindow ="","alertWindow",windowLocation);
              alertWindow.document.write("<html><head><title>Alert!</title></head><body bgcolor='#C0C0C0'>");
              alertWindow.document.write("<div align='center'>" + alertMessage + "<br>");
              alertWindow.document.write("<form><input type='button' value=' YES ' onclick='window.close()' align='center'></form>");

    // Here is the call:
    <input type="button" value="test" onclick="alertBox('This is an alert!!!')">
