An alert box can't be closed without user action. Why is an alert box being shown if an AJAX function should be called instead? Have you considered other ways of showing a message to the user, e.g. putting it in the web page in a suitably noticeable font?

It is called you would have to code your ow with layers. It is not that hard to do. Here is the basic idea:

Dynamically position a div on the page [position:absolute,top.left,zIndex]
Hide/Show it [display:none,block]
set Your message innerHTML = "foo";
hide it after set period of time [setTimeout]
hide it by a user action [onclick]
