Hi justin11;

I believe it should be this way

Dim js As String = "<script language='javascript'>alert(" & sMessage & ");</script>"


I think you needed quotes around the text (at least I have always done it that way.

Dim js As String = "<script language='javascript'>alert('" & sMessage & "');</script>"
