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>

<cfform name="myform" action="somePage.cfm" height="300" width="400" format="Flash" timeout="0">
      <cfformitem type="script">
            function confirmSubmit() {
                  var myObj = {};
                   var confirm = function (evt){
                        if (evt.detail == mx.controls.Alert.OK)
                        {
                              _root.submitForm();
                        }      
                  }
                  alert("Are you sure you want to remove all records?",
                              "Warning",
                              mx.controls.Alert.OK | mx.controls.Alert.CANCEL,  
                              confirm
                        );
            }            
      </cfformitem>
       <cfformgroup type="hbox">
                <cfinput type="Button" name="myBtn" onClick="confirmSubmit()" value="Show Alert" />                  
      </cfformgroup>
</cfform>
