I'm using the alert function to display form validation error to the user in arabic. I've no problems display my arabic message. However, the 'OK' button for alert popups cannot be displayed in Arabic.

Anyone has any suggestion how to get the button for alert popups to display in Arabic?

Thanks in advance,

That is part of the browser and can not be changed. I am guessing if their computer is set up with that langauage then the buttons would appear with the correct text.

Hi Eric,

I've installed and change my computer's regional settings to Arabic but to no avail. The buttons are still appearing in English.

Any other advise would be appreciated.

I agree. Here's the link:
