Can anyone tell me why doesnt MsgBox() work in some my websites it works.but in some cases it shows error.....
Is there any alternate way to use message box other than javascript???

I am not sure but MsgBox() is the function which you made to show the alert message OR MsbBox() is the private method at server side code to show the message like MessageBox in the windows application. Please add your MsgBox() code here in your question to get the better idea. Edit your question and add your MsgBox() code.

U can use ModalPopupExtender of Ajax Extension....

The script of the ModalPopupExtender is as follows:

<asp:ScriptManager id="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    <asp:Button ID="hiddenTargetControlForModalPopup" runat="server" Style="display: none" />
    <ajaxToolkit:ModalPopupExtender ID="programmaticModalPopup" runat="server" BackgroundCssClass="modalBackground"

        BehaviorID="programmaticModalPopupBehavior" DropShadow="True" PopupControlID="programmaticPopup"

        PopupDragHandleControlID="programmaticPopupDragHandle" RepositionMode="RepositionOnWindowScroll"

    <asp:Panel ID="programmaticPopup" runat="server" CssClass="modalPopup" Style="display: none;
        width: 350px; padding: 10px">
        <asp:Panel ID="programmaticPopupDragHandle" runat="Server" Style="cursor: move; background-color: #DDDDDD;
            border: solid 1px Gray; color: Black; text-align: center;">
        <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel3" runat="server">
<asp:Label id="lblStatusMessage" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label>
        <asp:Button ID="OkButton" runat="server" OnClick="hideModalPopupViaServer_Click"

            Text="OK" Width="58px" />
        <br />

Then to use the ModalPopupExtender whereever u want u can use the code below....
    this.lblStatusMessage.Text="Message Here";

Note-> Dont forget to add the following code in ur code behind file to make the Messagebox disappear when the ok button is clicked..

protected void hideModalPopupViaServer_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

What kind of message box your using...

If talking about Windows MessageBox.Show, then it will work for windows application only...

Using MessageBox.Show() in web apps will work, but it only displays on the server.

The reason for this is that the server is where your code is being processed.

To get this to work on the client side you need to use code that is processed on the client side, like javascript.
