Javascript popup in new supported way

I have a field that has javascript embedded in it to provide a confirmation to the user when they acknowledge via a button.  The code is at the end of this post.

How do I do this in the new approved javascript format?  I guess I need a code page but I basically searched the internet to get this to work, I am not really familiar with javascript.  I dont know how to call a code page or if I just simple move this javascript into it and make it a js file?

var text URL = URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_THE_ELITE_WAY_VIEWS] &
"?a=API_AddRecord" &
"&_fid_6=" & URLEncode ([Record ID#]) &
"&_fid_8=" & URLEncode(User()) &
"&_fid_10=" & URLEncode(Today());

"javascript:" &"$.get('" & $URL & "',function(){" &"location.reload(true);" &"});" & "void(0);alert('Confirmed');"

  • If you are just looking to execute a URL and refresh the page, this here is sample syntax.  But it will not do a pop up.

    var text Approve = URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?act=API_EditRecord&rid=" & ToText([Record ID#])
    & "&_fid_144=Approved";

    var text RefreshPage = URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=doredirect&z=" & Rurl();

    & "&rdr=" & URLEncode($RefreshPage)

      I do want to alert the user that the button executed.  Vs just the page blinking as it refreshes.
