javascript confirm pop up

I have the following script for a confirm pop up message. I want it to redirect to a different page when user hits "Ok" and keep them on the same page if they hit "Cancel".

Currently its doing reverse for me. on hitting cancel it redirects me to a different page and "ok" keeps me on the same page.

any idea on what I need to change.

Try this
string strconfirm = "<script>if(window.confirm('Your password does not meet the new password rules. (" + message + ")\\nYour current password will expire in (" + daysRemaining + ") days.\\nWould you like to update you password now?')){window.location.href='changepassword.aspx'}</script>";
                        CSM.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "Confirm", strconfirm, false);

If it works in the opposite way that you expect, then julianH should have the answer for you. Removing the ! in the window.confirm call would do the trick. You are currently saying if you don't confirm,  redirect to the new page.

Just add an else with the window.location bit you want.
string strconfirm = "<script>if(window.confirm('Your password does not meet the new password rules. (" + message + ")\\nYour current password will expire in (" + daysRemaining + ") days.\\nWould you like to update you password now?')){window.location.href='changepassword.aspx'}else{window.location.href='someotherpage.aspx'}</script>";
                        CSM.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "Confirm", strconfirm, false);
