I would like some help in getting Jquery Dialog working. So far I have used Jquery tutorials to get going but have reached a bit of a cul de sac. I am trying to fire a JQ dialog from a javascript and  not from a click. The dialog fires OK but im at a loss trying to catch its returns.  So I have the following.

In the document ready script

            autoOpen: false,
            width: 400,
            modal: true,
            resizable: false,
            buttons: {
                "OK": function() {
                    return true
                "Cancel": function() {
                return false
and a div with the dialogue
<div id="remove_dialog" title="Confirm Action ">
<p><span class="ui-icon ui-icon-alert" style="float:left; margin:0 7px 0 0;"></span> You clicked to remove car:</p>
<p id="dialog-rego"></p>
<p>Click "OK" to remove.</p>
<p>If not, click Cancel.<p>
and the function which fires the dialog

function remove(){
var iFrame =  document.getElementById('formsframe')
carreg =  OForm.registration.value;

return jQuery('#remove_dialog').dialog('open');

warning(carreg+ " has been removed from the database");
return false;
} do I catch and interpret the returns from the dialog, control doesnt appear to pass back to the remove function.

Thanks for any help
