Adobe and Javascript

I have the attached codes inside of the adobe pdf, and it work fine except when the button is clicked, the parent page will be redirected to url that the code is pointing to...
instead of that, I prefer to have just show a popup ("Done"), and clear all the data inside of the form. Have anyone known the coding javascript in Adobe Acrobat?

var typeofbond  = this.getField("typeofbond");
var bondamount  = this.getField("bondamount");
var exedate       = this.getField("exedate");
var term          = this.getField("term");
var priname       = this.getField("priname");
var phone       = this.getField("phone");
var pfax       = this.getField("pfax");
var pstreet       = this.getField("pstreet");
var pcity       = this.getField("pcity");
var pstate      = this.getField("pstate");
var pzip       = this.getField("pzip");
this.submitForm("https://xxx/eservices/testpdf.asp?typeofbond=" + typeofbond.value + "&bondamount=" + bondamount.value + "&priname=" + priname.value + "&pstreet=" + pstreet.value + "&pcity=" + pcity.value + "&pstate=" + pstate.value + "&pzip=" + pzip.value + "&phone=" + phone.value + "&pfax=" + pfax.value);

To reset the form, use this.resetForm(); to show an alert use, app.alert('Done');

mohan_sekar: thank you, however, because of using app.alert('xxx')
it shows a "x" icon on  the left. can message box show another icon or not icon is fine.
do we have app.message('xxx') thing like that?
It's highly customizable.
Just use app.alert('Done',3)
Here is the complete syntax

A string containing the message to be displayed.

(optional) An icon type. Possible values are these:
0: Error (default)
1: Warning
2: Question
3: Status
NOTE:On Macintosh, there is no distinction between warnings and questions.

(optional) A button group type. Possible values are these:
0: OK (default)
1: OK, Cancel
2: Yes, No
3: Yes, No, Cancel

(optional, Acrobat 6.0) The dialog box title. If not specified, the title "Adobe Acrobat" is used.

(optional, Acrobat 6.0) The Document Object that the alert should be associated with.

(optional, Acrobat 6.0) If specified, a check box is created in the lower left region of the alert box. oCheckbox is a generic JavaScript object that has three properties. The first two property values are passed to the alert method; the third property returns a Boolean.
ÏcMsg (optional): A string to display with the check box. If not specified, the default string is "Do not show this message again".
ÏbInitialValue (optional): If true, the initial state of the check box is checked. The default is false.
ÏbAfterValue : When the alert method exits, contains the state of the check box when the dialog box is closed.
