Tutorial :Javascript Confirm popup Yes, No button instead of OK and Cancel


Javascript Confirm popup, I want to show Yes, No button instead of OK and Cancel.

I have used this vbscript code:

<script language="javascript">      function window.confirm(str) {          execScript('n = msgbox("' + str + '","4132")', "vbscript");          return (n == 6);      }  </script>  

this only works in IE, In FF and Chrome, it doesn't work.

Is there any workround to achieve this in Javascript?

I also want to change the title of popup like in IE 'Windows Internet Explorer' is shown, I want to show here my own application name.


Unfortunately, there is no cross-browser support for opening a confirmation dialog that is not the default OK/Cancel pair. The solution you provided uses VBScript, which is only available in IE.

I would suggest using a Javascript library that can build a DOM-based dialog instead. Try Jquery UI: http://jqueryui.com/


The only way you can accomplish this in a cross-browser way is to use a framework like jQuery UI and create a custom Dialog:

jquery Dialog

It doesn't work in exactly the same way as the built-in confirm popup but you should be able to make it do what you want.


You can also use http://projectshadowlight.org/jquery-easy-confirm-dialog/ . It's very simple and easy to use. Just include jquery common library and one more file only:

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>  <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.7.2/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>  <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.7.1/themes/blitzer/jquery-ui.css" type="text/css" />  <script src="jquery.easy-confirm-dialog.js"></script>  


You can't do this cross-browser with the confirm() function or similar. I highly suggest you use something like the jQuery UI dialog feature to create an HTML dialog box instead.


The featured (but small and simple) library you can use is JSDialog: js.plus/products/jsdialog

Here is a sample for creating a dialog with Yes and No buttons:

JSDialog.showConfirmDialog(      "Save document before it will be closed?\nIf you press `No` all unsaved changes will be lost.",      function(result) {          // check result here      },      "warning",      "yes|no|cancel"  );

Have a look at http://bootboxjs.com/

Very easy to use:

 bootbox.confirm("Are you sure?", function(result) {    Example.show("Confirm result: "+result);  });  


1) You can download and upload below files on your site

<link href="/Style%20Library/css/smoothness/jquery.alerts.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>   

2) after that you can directly use below code

$.alerts.okButton = "yes"; $.alerts.cancelButton = "no";

in document.ready function.

Please try it will work.



the very specific answer to the point is confirm dialogue Js Function:

confirm('Do you really want to do so');  

It show dialogue box with ok cancel buttons,to replace these button with yes no is not so simple task,for that you need to write jQuery function.
