javascript merge "if confirm" with "submit"


Javascript question.
How can I merge the 2 following statements so that user has only to click once?

if (confirm("A very long explanation here."))

document.write("<input type='submit' value='Press to continue.'>");

Thank you for your help.

If you just want them to click once then why not just remove the confirmation box?

Because the waiting period between this and the next screen is the longest in the series and the "confirmation" box holds a message to that effect as well as a "confirmation" option.

How are you expecting them to only click once then? Are you looking for the confirm dialog to go away after a predetermined time?

No, I'm asking if there is a way to bundle the 2 together in a way that the "if confirm" can act as a "submit".

That should be possible by just calling "document.formname.submit()" if the confirm command returns true.
