HTML - How to do a Confirmation popup to a Submit button and then send the request?

I am learning web development using Django and have some problems in where to put the code taking chage of whether to submit the request in the HTML code.

Eg. There is webpage containing a form(a blog) to be filled by the user, and upon click on the Save button,there is a pop up asking whether you want to confirm or not. If click on confirm, then the request is sent.

I searched and find this javascript code.

<script type="text/javascript">
function clicked() {
alert('clicked');
}




<input type="submit" onclick="clicked();" value="Button" />


But I guess this is not the correct function as it seems to me that whenever you click on the Button, the request will be submitted. So How can I delay the submit request until user has confirm the submit?

Thank you very much

Answer

I believe you want to use confirm()

<script type="text/javascript">
    function clicked() {
       if (confirm('Do you want to submit?')) {
           yourformelement.submit();
       } else {
           return false;
       }
    }
