Cross-browser alternative for javascript prompt

Rated4.3/5 (3 ratings)

Very easy to install and use and is not based on css layers.
Product Details

In yet another sly move by Micro$oft, MSIE 7 has been designed to suppress the javascript prompt function, yet at the same time always allow their MSIE-specific showModalDialog method. This has broken millions of web sites. The work-arounds to this problem are any of these: 1. Use the showModalDialog method instead and thereby only support MSIE browsers (they wish). 2. Do away with using prompt dialogs completely. 3. Use simulated modal dialogs with layer's and key capturing (complicated and messy). 4. Use a class such as this to that mimics the javascript prompt function for MSIE 7 and up by using showModalDialog(). Usage: Place the files Prompt.js, Prompt.html, and Prompt.png together into any directory in your site. Do not rename any of the files or else it won't work. Place this line in the head section of your html: <script type="text/javascript" src="/path/to/Prompt.js"& gt; </script> Example: var name = Prompt.show('Who are you?');
