[SOLVED] "Are you sure" after clicking submit


Recommended Posts

I have a large form, a few people keep hitting "enter" or something in a text box, thus sending the whole incomplete document.


When they click on submit, i want a warning message to come up that says something along the lines of, "Are you sure you'd like to submit this?" with a yes/no option.


I know this is a simple code, i've had it before. But I cannot remember what the actual code is, nor can I find it.


Thanks for the help.

the problem w/ onclick="return confirm('Are you sure?')" is that if they select "no" it will still send the form.


this should really be in javascript, but anyway:


onclick="var x = confirm('are your sure'); if(!x){ return false; }"




function rUsure(){
var confirmation = confirm("Are you Sure You want to submit this form");
if(confirmation == false){
return false;

<form action="" method="" onsubmit="return rUsure()"> </a>

always works for me?


really? huh. maybe I was using a crappy browser the first time i tried using the confim() function.  It was a few years ago and I've just always used my work around assuming that its the only way it works. Apparently it may not be necessary.  ;D
