    Notes

    The following text is shared between this article, DOM:window.prompt and DOM:window.alert Dialog boxes are modal windows - they prevent the user from accessing the rest of the program's interface until the dialog box is closed. For this reason, you should not overuse any function that creates a dialog box (or modal window). And regardless, there are very good reasons to avoid using dialog boxes for confirmation.

    Mozilla Chrome users (e.g. Firefox extensions) should use methods of nsIPromptService instead.

    The argument is optional and not required by the spec.

    Specification

    Specified in HTML5.
