What is "the next step". You asked how to implement a confirm box and know whether the users selects OK or Cancel... that's what I gave you.

next step is next line after
ScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptBlock(Page, Page.GetType(), "showmessage", "if(confirm(' + strmsg + ')){ MyFunctionOnSuccess() };", true);
even the your script form does not work.

Well, you can't run client side code (for example javascript messagebox) and get immediate result in code behind because code behind is server side.
code behind need a postback to read client input, so code excution must stop and page reload before continuing.... impossible in this case to run code, ask something to user, and continue execution.
Only Javascript can do it, but javascript is not code behind....
I hope my explanation is not too tricky... I'm French and my english is in beta test !
