I have developed a user registration system to be used over the internet. It is written in MS VB using MS visual Web Developer. I used MsgBox to send various messages to the user. This worked fine as long as I was in development mode using Ctrl F5 to execute the programs but, when I try to test over the internet, I can't get MsgBox to work. What should I use to send information messages back to the user over the internet?????? The messages are simple such as "Update Successful" and the user needs to know but, I am at a loss for a simple method to send the messages.

the best way I have always found is to put a javascript function on the page that simply takes in a string and shoots off an alert box containing the string parameter, when it is called so that you can cause it to fire off from the code behind the page.

'Code
           Dim strmessage2 As String
            strmessage2 = "Please select a Date first"
            'Call separate Class, passing page reference, to register Client Script:
            CreateMessageAlert(Me, strmessage2, "strKey1")

'Seperate Class
        Public Shared Sub CreateMessageAlert(ByRef aspxPage As System.Web.UI.Page, _
                                ByVal strMessage As String, ByVal strKey As String)
            Dim strScript As String = "<script language=JavaScript>alert('" _
                                                & strMessage & "')</script>"

            If (Not aspxPage.IsStartupScriptRegistered(strKey)) Then
                aspxPage.RegisterStartupScript(strKey, strScript)
            End If
        End Sub
