confirming actions

How do you use the "Popup confirm message" behaviour if you want to confirm or cancel a particular action?

For example, I would like to attach it to a button that already has a "go to url" behaviour. I assumed I could just add the popup behaviour, reorder so that this behaviour occurs BEFORE the go to url then if the user clicks "OK" they get redirected, otherwise they remain where they are. However, it doesn't seem to work like that.

Any advice would be appreciated.

RE: does it work in MX

Yes it works on DMX. Just make a link or select your form - then Behaviors / Popup Conform Message

does it work in MX

does this extension work with MX?  if so how do i access it?

RE: follow up

Sandy, you can find the Validate Form Behavior in the Behaviors inspector. It is a standard behavior and you don't need to download it anymore.
