client side button confirm not working

For some reason my client side button confirm is not working.  I'm using IE7, windows vista, and I have duplicated this in both VS 08 and VS 05, and neither work.  When I click the button, the confirm shows up, but when I click cancel, the page still posts back.  What am I missing?!?!?!?!
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />
    </div>
    </form>
</body>

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page {
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
        Button1.Attributes["onclick"] = "javascript:return confirm('dffddads');";
    }
}

change it to
Button1.Attributes["OnClientClick"] = "javascript:return confirm('dffddads');";

onclick is in the end a server side event so it is going to postback by default. You want this to be a client side event so use OnClientClick.
