Default Messagebox in a web form

I am a VB.Net newbie, so I thought this would be a good place to ask a basic question like this...

I am trying to use a messagebox, or its equivalent, in a web form. So far, I have not had any luck. I know there must be a way. I see messageboxes on web pages all the time. I am thinking that I need to import to the page some package that contains all the messagebox functionality in it. Am I on the right track?

If so, what do I need to import? If not, what DO I need to do?

FYI: Questions specific to ASP.Net should go in the ASPX Beginners forum.

Keep in mind that your ASP.Net code is running on the server so any VB message box you use would (if it were allowed) appear on the server console. The only real messagebox available to you in the browser is the javascript popup or using a popup window with another HTML page in it.

In JS it's "alert('hello');". But you get a fairly limited capability dialog (just an OK button with a simple message).
