Popup confirm not working.

I have a button in my form which will redirect the user to another page, but before this happens I added a 'pop-up confirm'.
If I use a regular image it works fine, but if I use this button the pop-up comes up and even though i select 'cancel' in the pop up then the user is re-directed, and they shouldn't.

What is wrong with this code ?

<input name="BtnArchive" type="button" class="bodytext" id="Btncancel2" onClick="GP_popupConfirmMsg('Please confirm you wish to archive this contact.\r\rNote that all of this contact\'s cases will also be archived automatically.');self.location='ArchiveContactandCases.asp?NewUserid=<%=(ContactDetails.Fields.Item("UserId").Value)%>';return document.MM_returnValue" value="    Archive Contact    ">

Because you are telling the code to change location to ArchiveContactandCases.asp every time.

You do this nClick="GP_popupConfirmMsg('Please confirm you wish to archive this contact.\r\rNote that all of this contact\'s cases will also be archived automatically.');self.location='ArchiveContactandCases.asp?NewUserid=<%=(ContactDetails.Fields.Item("UserId").Value)%>';return document.MM_returnValue

which is like this:

GP_popupConfirmMsg('Please confirm you wish to archive this contact.\r\rNote that all of this contact\'s cases will also be archived automatically.');
self.location='ArchiveContactandCases.asp?NewUserid=<%=(ContactDetails.Fields.Item("UserId").Value)%>';
return document.MM_returnValue

Open in new window

As you can see here, it doesn't matter what happens in the GP_popupConfirmMsg, you always send the webpage to the Archivecontact... page in the very next line.

From google, I think the function you are using is like this:

function GP_popupConfirmMsg(msg) {
    if ( confirm(msg) ) {
        window.location = 'my page blah.asp';
    }
}

Open in new window


It is in this function that you should put the destination... (and any other code that should happen based on the selection.

It uses a dreamweaver extension, i add the first one to confirm, then add the next one to redirect IF first one works.
Is there a way to stop on the first one if user clicks 'cancel' ?
