Hi Martin,

Take a look at collective.alerts.

It provides 'JQuery Alert Dialogs', one of them being a prompt which the
user must confirm or cancel.

If the user presses cancel, the form is not submitted.

I used it in collective.idashboard to provide prompts like: "Are you
sure you want to delete this portlet?"

On the pypi page is a link to Cory LaViska's docs for the original
JQuery plugin.
