Creating interactive alert, confirm, and prompt boxes using JavaScript

You've undoubtedly seen them, used them, and gotten annoyed by them while surfing the net. Now its time to learn how to create them- interactive dialog boxes, that is. With JavaScript, you can pump into your pages some life by using JavaScript controlled boxes. For example, you can have a box pop up asking surfers to type in his/her name and then display it accordingly. You can also have a confirmation box that gives users a choice whether or not to proceed with a specified action, such as enter a restricted site. These are among the endless possibilities that are out there; fortunately, there are only three methods (commands) you'll need to learn to be able to achieve all of them.
