Please refer to the following code:

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        ClientScriptManager CSM = Page.ClientScript;
        if (!ReturnValue())
            string strconfirm = "<script>if(!window.confirm('Are you sure?')){window.location.href='Default.aspx'}</script>";
            CSM.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "Confirm", strconfirm, false);
    bool ReturnValue()
        return false;

Hi you can use this script for getting confirmation from the user

function ConfirmSave()
        var Ok = confirm('Are you sure want to save the changes?');
            return true;
            return false;
---------------------------------------//For redirection to the URL

function ConfirmCancel(URL)
        var Ok = confirm('Are you sure want to Cancel the changes?');
        if(Ok == true)
            //return false;

In server side you can add this line for adding attributes of onclick()

btnSave.Attributes["onclick"] = "javascript:return ConfirmSave();";           

btnCancel.Attributes["onclick"] = "javascript:ConfirmCancel('InspectionNew.aspx');";


Thanks & regards

You can do like this..

        if (true)
            //Your code
            Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "open", "show();", true);


    <script type="text/javascript">
        function show()
            if(confirm('r u sure?'))

Take a hidden field, label and button and write the javascript function between the head tags as shown below


<asp:HiddenField ID="hdnbox" runat="server" />

<br />

<asp:Label ID="lblResult" runat="server"></asp:Label><br />

<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" /></div>

<SCRIPT type="text/javascript" language="javascript">function getMessage()


var ans; ans=window.confirm('Is it your confirmation.....?'); //alert (ans); if (ans==true)











And in the code behind write this code

Page load event

Button1.Attributes.Add("onclick", "getMessage()")

button click event

If Request.Form("hdnbox") = "Yes" Then

lblResult.Text = "You have clicked Ok" ' Write the logic when Ok is clicked i.e., redirect to pag1.aspx lets say


lblResult.Text = "You have clicked Cancel" ' Write the logic when Cancel is clicked i.e., redirect to pag2.aspx lets say or do nothing

End If

Hope this will help!

Implementing .Net Form into an web form, can this be done
I am new here, but have been searching for a while, and may not have the correct lingo to find what I am looking for.  I am tasked with implementing a .exe application that was writen vb6 then converted to .net into a new website my team is developing. The idea is to put each of the 3 different forms in this .exe application of 3 different .aspx pages. I have attempted multiple things to get this into the page and even started to just rewrite it as an web form, but even then I can't reuse any of the code since the System.Web.UI.Page doesn't inherit the same functions and object of the System.Windows.Forms.Form, I have even tried having the page Inherit System.Windows.Forms.Form, and the page shows but none of the data actually populates, it just looks like a blank form...   So the question is, how do I find out more information about implementing either the full application or at least the functionality? I am not looking for someone to do the work for me, I just need to find a good starting point since I want to learn if this is possible and how to do it. Again I may not be up on all the lingo, so even giving search terms would be helpful.   Thanks, PadawangeekPadawangeekAlways learning...
