Messagebox with dash on button click

Hi,
Is it possible to launch a messagebox on button click callback ?
I didn’t find any example of documentation of doing that, so I’ve been trying to create an invisible div and on button click populated it with

html.Script('alert(1);', type='text/javascript')
Which didn’t work.
Any suggestions ?

That particular example isn’t possible because Dash doesn’t execute arbitrary javascript (for security reasons). So, if you wanted a custom message box, that would need to be encapsulated as a custom Dash component (https://dash.plot.ly/plugins)
