Submit button doesn't run the action if javascript fails

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering is it possible to make javascript that doesn't let the user go to example action="test.php" page if javascript says so. Example im having this javascript

<script type="text/javascript">var r=confirm("Click the OK button now!");if (r==true){  alert("You pressed OK!");<!-- THIS SHOULD ALLOW THE ACTION (SO IT WOULD ALLOW USER TO CONTINUE TO ACTION PHP PAGE) -->}else{  alert("You pressed Cancel!");<!-- THIS SHOULD CANCEL THE ACTION (SO IT WOULD NOT CONTINUE TO ACTION PHP PAGE) -->}</script>

So if user presses OK it allows user get to the next page and if user press cancel it doesn't let Oo found cool page with info at this http://www.htmlforums.com/client-side-scripting/t-how-to-cancel-submit-action-33810.html

Here is the code if it helps anyone (Works like charm)

<script type="text/javascript">function conf_delete() {var r=confirm("Click the OK button now!");if (r==true){  alert("You pressed OK!");return true; }else{  alert("You pressed Cancel!");return false;}}</script></head><body><form id="form1" onsubmit="return conf_delete()" name="form1" method="post" action="#">  <label>    <input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Submit" />  </label></form>
