Hi everyone

I have a data grid and 2 buttons on a page, when a user cancels the window, i want to displat a popup asking the whethere they are sure they want to cancel.

i currently have

function SaveChanges()
event.returnValue = "You will loose all unsaved changes, please update details before closing the window.";

i call this function on the body like

<body bgColor="#ffffff" MS_POSITIONING="GridLayout" onbeforeunload="SaveChanges()">

Problem is, this message comes up even when clicking the buttons on the page, which is wrong, i want it to happen only when the user closes/cancels the window. Please help
