Adding Javascript Function to Button Click in addition to Function already called

Greetings All!

I have a webform that has a button which when clicked calls a C# function to do a bunch of stuff.  That all works great.  I now want to add a simple Javascript alert in addition to the C# function being called whenever the button is clicked.   Originally I wanted to just to the Javascript alert from within the C# function but this always interferes with the final page destination (through a previous Question I tried many different alternatives with no luck).  

So with my webform can I tell the Button to do a Javascript function in addition to calling the C# function?   Currently the C# function call is set up by naming it in the Click field of the Properties box for the Button.

Many thanks for any ideas on this!

Thanks....it seems that OnClientClick is not available in .NET 1.1 possibly only in 2.0 or above.  Does that make sense?  

I tried just using the OnClick function but am getting an error with that when I run this page...it says it can't find the function I'm specificying with OnClick.

I've attached a code segment (actually the whole aspx page..its short)...can you see where I'm going wrong?  

Many thanks!
