I am trying to validate the confirm() funtion to return true in OK button is clicked in to return false if CANCEL button is clicked. i do not know how to refer to the OK or CANCEL button... Here

code:
function comfirmDel(userForm){
confirm("Are you sure you want to Delete this Object?\nNote: This operation is not reversible.\nSelect Cancel if you do not want to Perform this Operation.");
userForm.btnDelete.focus();
}


.................... I intend to call the confirmDel(...) method in a form Below

<FORM name=update action='servlet/dmsDelUser' method=post onsubmit="return comfirmDel(this)">

..... no matter what button i chose when the confirm dialog prompts, my forms still submit..

The confirm() function itself returns true or false based on which button the user clicks (OK -> true, Cancel -> false).

Simply

return confirm(...);

Change yor onsubmit to this:

code:
onsubmit="return(confirm('Are you sure you want to Delete this Object?\nNote: This operation is not reversible.\nSelect Cancel if you do not want to Perform this Operation.'));">
