I'm using a bootbox prompt to allow a user to update a field or indicate if it should be deleted.  Unfortunately I can't work out how to determine which button has been pressed.

bootbox.prompt({
	title: "Edit Custom Product Catalog",
	value: 'Default Text',
	buttons: {
		cancel: {
			label: 'Delete Catalog',
			className: 'btn-danger',
			callback: function () {
				alert('Cancel Button Pressed');
			}
		},
		confirm: {
			label: 'Save',
			className: 'btn-success',
			callback: function () {
				alert('Save Button Pressed');
			}
		}
	},
	callback: function (result) {
		alert('This always called');
	}
});

You can bind a regular click event listener:

$('.btn-success, .btn-danger').on('click',function() {
      alert($(this).text());
});

At what point do you need to determine which button was clicked? They each have separate callback functions, so you shouldn't have any trouble determining this on the front end. If you give them a name and a value, you should be able to determine which button is pressed on the backend after the form is submitted.

Look at the docs for Prompt

callback: function (result) {
  // If null then cancelled
  if (result === null) {
    alert('null');
  }
  else {
    alert('not null');
  }
}

Hi guys, and thanks for the responses.

zephyr_hex - thanks...uglier than I'd hoped but does the trick given the apparent limitation of Fiddler.  Cheers!

Kim Walker - I should have noted neither of the button callbacks are working.  This can be verified in the jsfiddle.

Julian Hansen - This does not tell me if the Delete was pressed or if the dialog was closed by virtue of clicking the close X.   I should have added a third button to make my situation clearer.  I need to know what button is clicked.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Null = delete
Not Null = save
Let me re-phrase the sample
callback: function (result) {
  if (result==null) {
    alert('Delete');
  }
  else {
    alert('Save');
  }
}

Hi Julian and thanks for the follow up.

Unfortunately this does not tell me if the Delete was pressed or if the dialog was closed by virtue of clicking the close X:

This worked great..thanks!

In the end I moved to using the custom dialog functionality which seemed to be a better fit for the task:

https://jsfiddle.net/scotie/9st093a8/1/

 bootbox.dialog({
        message: '<div class="form-group">' +
                    '<input id="CustomCatalogName" type="text" class="form-control" value="Default Text" autocomplete="off"></div>',
        buttons: {
            confirm: {
                label: 'Save',
                className: 'btn-success',
                callback: function () {
                      alert('save');
                    }
                },
            cancel: {
                label: 'Delete',
                className: 'btn-danger',
                callback: function () {
                   alert('delete');
                }
            }
        }
    });

Begs the question as to why you are using bootbox in the first place. Essentially you are back to a customised Bootstrap modal
