Default Custom Dialog Box

I am in need of a dialog box which should have options like VBScript model "Yes/No/Cancel" or "Ok/Cancel/Abort".

So that I come up with my own custom dialog box. But the thing is I need to control script execution until user clicks either of the options available in the custom dialog box similar to browser's dialog boxes. But the statements after dialog box invocation, are executing as usual. To avoid this is there any solution / workaround.

Please find time to let me know the solution.

Thanks In advance..

Without seeing your code it's hard to say. You can show a div with the relevant buttons and text and then have the buttons call function sin the page, there shouldn't need to be any code after the dialogue box is shown.

I agree, you won't be using a "real" dialog box, but the solution should be pretty straightforward and execute with identical functionality to what you're used to in VBScript. And since it's custom you can have the buttons say anything you want, look any way you want, use CSS for appearance, include button images, or whatever.

Or you can look into third party commercial Dialog products and save yourself some development time and frustration.

Here's one I often work with (from Telerik)
