Stop an LS agent with a prompt function instead of a message display

I'm using LotusScript as a background agent for Web development. My requirement is if there is any validation I'm able to stop by writing HTML code in the script, but I want a prompt function that can alert users instead of displaying a message on the form. Is there any way?
You don't give a lot of details, but I will try to answer your question. If a validation in your LotusScript agent fails, you could print something like this from the agent:
Print "Valdiation failed"
That would be displayed on a Web page. But you would like the user to see a prompt box instead, so print this in your agent instead:
Print "<script>alert('validation failed'); history.back();</script>"
It will display a blank page and an alert box, and when the user clicks OK, he will be returned to the previous page.
