Very nice tip!
I really like the little player on the right that shows what the markup 
does.

This shows the capability to do this kind of thing in XForms 1.0, and of 
course the 
new prompt action in XForms 1.1 will provide another way to do this via 
the separate 
popup alert.

Again, nice work...

XForms Tip - Confirmation with XForms







All,

Another XForms tip you can use to implement a cool "Do It" / "Cancel" 
type of confirmation:

This is a user interface pattern that is getting more popular with 
Ajax-based web apps. The great news is that it is very easy to do with 
XForms, and I for one prefer it to traditional browser pop-up alerts.
