Hi all,

Is there a way to interpret the html contents inside the JavaScript alert box ?

We need to show anchor tag inside the alert box, but it shows the html markup instead of rendering the link.

The demo code is as below.
<html>
    <head>
        <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
        function show()
        {
            alert('<a href="http://www.codeproject.com/">Code Project</a>');
        }
        </script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <input type="button" id="show" value="show" onclick="show()">
    </body>
</html>
Here the alert box shows the html of anchor like below, but not as one link.
<a href="http://www.codeproject.com/">Code Project</a>
I know that we can do this by jQuery modal, but still if anybody has tried doing it in JavaScript by overriding the default behavior, then please share.

Thanks in advance,
Tadit

Hi Yashwanth,

I did not able to find any solution for this. You can show a jQuery modal dialog for this type of requirement.

Thanks,
Tadit

You can use a div instead of using the confirm box.
