View Full Version : Newbie: Can text of js confirm() buttons be changed?

07-06-2006, 11:12 PM
New to js, but an old-dog programmer...

Am used to VB or the X Window System where I configure these things "8-ways for Sunday".

All I need is "Yes" and "No" vs. "Ok" and "Cancel", but all I ever see are simple `confirm("Who's your Daddy?")-type examples, otherwise you must write your own.`

The OO-programmer in me says there's got to be a way to get at this stuff, but I haven't found a trail...

Is it true these cannot be changed, or have I just not RTFM'd the right manual? (If so, where is THAT manual?)

Say it ain't so (please)!

Thanks in advance.

You cannot modify these modal windows as they are part of the browser, not part of your application. Basically, you're making a call to your environment, which is the browser. The browser considers it a security violation to modify things of this nature, as you can fool users into doing things they wouldn't otherwise do.

Sorry, you're stuck with the same Ok/Cancel.
