I have written the script like this

Here if the user wont enter filename and clicks ok or he presses cancel button with or without entering filename the alert box will popup. I dont want this. what I want is if the user presses canel it should return false and if the user clicks ok without entering filename then it should alert and return false. How to handle this can anybody guide me to achieve this.

Thanking you.

There is no way to detect if cancel was clicked.

Also length==0 is the same thing as value=""
