The expert above is correct.  Javascript doesn't allow that type of control over the alert or confirm.  Vbscript will but is only supported by IE browsers (or others with an addon/extension).  If you need something different to work in many browsers dhtml is the common method.  If the link above doesn't help let us know and we can try to provide others.  All credit to the expert above for first saying you can't.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.



As I am much involved in critical issues, couldnt get time to go on this. I will reopen this issue after some days!!! Please give me some time. Thanks for the follow up and remembering me.
