How can I send Visual Basic error message to user over internet? MsgBox doesn't Work!

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.
