Confirmation message before form submission in ColdFusion Flash Form?

I need to have an alert box pop up that requires the user to confirm or cancel the form submission. I found the following example on asfusion, but it doesn't actually submit the form. If I try and apply this to the submit button I see the confirmation box pop up for a second before the form submits, which obviously is useless. Can this be done?

<cfsavecontent variable="showAlert">
      var myObj = {};
       var myClickHandler = function (evt){
        if (evt.detail == mx.controls.Alert.OK){
                alert("Records deleted","Completed");
        }
}
alert("Are you sure you want to remove all records?", "Warning", mx.controls.Alert.OK |
mx.controls.Alert.CANCEL,  myClickHandler);
</cfsavecontent>
<cfform name="myform" height="300" width="400" format="Flash" timeout="0" >
       <cfformgroup type="hbox">
                <cfinput type="Button" name="myBtn" onClick="#showAlert#" value="Show Alert" />                   
      </cfformgroup>
</cfform>
