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.
        <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
        function show()
            alert('<a href="">Code Project</a>');
        <input type="button" id="show" value="show" onclick="show()">

Here the alert box shows the html of anchor like below, but not as one link.
<a href="">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 Dash I need same sample as u have explained above, can u share me the code if u have got the result.
Hi Yashwanth,

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

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

If your aspx page is displayed in iframe then this concept will not work as expected.
