Content View: Scripting - Alert and confirm windows?
  •     Bart April 23, 2013 5:55AM
    Hello guys,

    I can get prompt window in Content View, why I can't get any alert or confirm windows?

    Just a quick example , when I put this (bear in mind that this window is not showing full html code) :

    function y() {

    var y=window.prompt("please enter your name")
    var textf=document.getElementById("textf");

    I am getting window and also I am displaying name which I am putting in ,
    but when I do :

    var x=window.confirm("Are you sure you want to quit ??")
    if (x)
    window.alert("Thank you.")
    window.alert("Good choice.")

    Nothing happens

    Hi Bart,

    We disabled alert messages as it creates some issues with embedded IE browser.
    Please use just HTML DOM elements to show your messages, see attached example how you can show a message dialogue in JS.

    function showAlert(message) {
    document.getElementById("message").innerText = message;
    document.getElementById("messageHolder").style.display = "block";
    function hideAlert() {
    document.getElementById("messageHolder").style.display = "none";



    <div id="messageHolder" style="position:absolute; display:none; top:50%; left:50%; width:200px; height:100px; background-color:red; border:1px solid blue;">
    <div id="message"></div>
    <input type=button onclick="hideAlert();" value="ok" style="position:absolute; left:50%; bottom:0">

    <p style="margin-top: 0" align="left">
    <input id="inputText" type="text" value="Hello World!">
    <input type=button onclick="showAlert(document.getElementById('inputText').value);" value="Show alert!" >

    <p style="margin-top: 0" align="left">
    &#160; Some content

    Thanks Michael,

    and what about confirm window? Have you disabled it for the same reason ?
    Is there a way to go around it ?

    All "native/system" dialogue windows such as alert and confirm create some issues with embedded IE in Omniscope. So you shouldn't use them. If you are always in the internet you can use jQueryUI,, etc . Or you can write something like this yourself using the example from the previous post.
