Hi,
In my web application when a user clicks on close button i want a box to appear with following content :
Text : Changes you made will not be saved
Buttons :
1) Close
2) Don’t close

I tried using the window.confirm  It shows dialog like :
Screen-Shot-2016-07-29-at-12.13.59-P.pngI couldnt find how to change the names of the buttons.
Some places its mentioned that you cannot change it. What alternative ways are there ?

Thanks

Yes this is not possible to change these values.

To use something different you can go with Bootbox confirm method.

if you are using the front end just use the jquerUI modal dialog

https://jqueryui.com/dialog/#modal-confirmation, it'll be more work, but yes as far as i know you can't modify the buttons in a window.confirm, just like you cant change then button on the alert.

I tried using require("jquery-ui");
installed it using npm install jquery-ui.
But getting error on this line :     $("#dialog").dialog({ autoOpen: false });
TypeError: $(...).dialog is not a function
On this sample page : http://api.jqueryui.com/dialog/#entry-examples
They are using 3 jquery related libraries.
for jquery i am already using 2.1.4 version.

I don't think you've included jqueryUI correctly

https://www.npmjs.com/package/jquery-ui
https://forum.jquery.com/topic/how-can-i-install-jquery-ui-1-11-4-with-npm

i think you're going to have to download Jquery UI and add it manually.

I should also mention i'm not familiar with NPM
