I have been having some trouble in creating a simple notification box. Basically the objective here when I click the submit button
input type=button it will display a simple notification box like this.
I have tried using alert but it seems it cannot be styled and I need to use jquery instead.
you can use jquery ui dialog, if you're planing to use jquery. Have look: http://jqueryui.com/dialog/
This will give you a decent walkthrough as well as the code to do what you are looking for without using plugins. These are often called "modal dialogs".
