Hi -

I'm using Struts.

I've a drop down for displaying the status of the property and i need to add a confirm dialog box for this -

Here is a sample code snippet -

<html:select styleClass="formTextField" property="propStatusCd" tabindex="1" onchange="return confirmPropStatusChange();"  >
     <html:option value="">-- Select --</html:option>
      <html:options collection="<%=LookupTypeDropdownUtils.LOOKUPENM_PropertyStatusLookupType%>"
        property="typeIdCode" labelProperty="typeName" />

And here is my javascript -

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
function confirmPropStatusChange() {
  if (confirm("!")) {
    return true;
  } else {
    return false;

Now when i change the dropdown value, the confirm dialog box is being prompted but irrespective of whether i select "OK" or "CANCEL" the drop down value is getting changed.

But it should be something like - When i select "OK" the new value should be retained but when i select "CANCEL" the old value should be retained.

Please advice.

Thank You-
