I have a form on a php page, and all i simply want is when a user clicks "submit" it brings up  a PopUp message / error.
I have gone through the site and for some reason have not found a simple solution.
So basically, when a user clicks the submit button, I want it to display a popup with a message and two buttons like ...
Are you sure you want to continue?
if "Yes" .... go to this page
if "No" .... close the popup and return to the same page

Thanks!

Hm does it work to put it in the onsubmit of the form? The way I've always done it is in the input button's onclick:

<input onclick="return confirm('Click OK to submit.');" type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">

But perhaps sinoj's solution works not only when you click the button, but also when something programatically submits the form or the user hits enter while inside the last textbox of the form. So try his first.

Sinoj's suggestion of doing it in the form tag with the onsubmit event will work.  The "thoughts" you shared in your comment on its benefits are correct.  I recommend doing it in the onsubmit event in the form tag although there is nothing wrong with the way you suggested it.

I hope this helps. :)  Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

I've tried both ways and I think they work the exact same, I don't notice any difference. Both of them will work if the user hits return after entering data in any textbox in the form.
It's a toss of a coin really ;-) so i'll split the points, cheers!
