 You can create your own Cofirmation msg dialog. u require,
 div tag, with 2 buttons and text to display.
Make this div to display(visible) when u want and allow to user to 
click any of the button. if clicked 'cancel' set to 'return false;'
if clicked 'replace' call respective function() with ur required code in it  or set a global var. with value=True.
 There are sites provides u help on this. go and search.

Happy Coding.

You can use following javascript:

<script type="text/javascript">

function showConfirm(id)


if (confirm('Are you sure you want to ' + document.getElementById(id).value))

return true;


return false;



This is how you can call javascript on your both buttons.

Me.btnReplace.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript: return showConfirm('" & Me.btnReplace.ClientID & "')")

Me.btnCancel.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript: return showConfirm('" & Me.btnCancel.ClientID & "')")

Hope it will solve your problem.

Besides the approaches the above listed, you can also check AjaxcontrolToolkit ConfirmButtonExtender:

It will provide you a custom confirm window.
