Alternate Confirm Message Box

Question:
Can I make a confirm message box with "Yes" and "No" as opposed to "OK" and "Cancel"?

Answer:
Unfortunately, you're out of luck. As you've found out, the JavaScript confirm() function is limited to "OK" and "Cancel" choices only. There is no easy way to display a native dialog box with different options through JavaScript. Your only real alternative is to pop-up a new browser window with HTML buttons, however, as you've probably guessed, this option requires considerably more work on your part. My best advice is to try to rework your dialog text so that "OK" and "Cancel" become more reasonable choices.
