Need help with javascript popup?

    Hi there could somebody help me out with this bit of javascript?

    <a href="javascript:;" onclick="document.forms[0].a_answer.value=document.forms[0].a_answer.value+'[link=PUT LINK HERE][/link]'">
    Link Here
    </a>
    
    <form id="form1" name="form1" method="post">
    <textarea name="a_answer" cols="50" rows="5" id="a_answer"></textarea>
    </form>
    Code (markup):
    I have this form and when I click the link the text [link=PUT LINK HERE][/link] is entered into the textbox. Does anybody have any ideas how I could edit my current code so that when the link is clicked the user gets a little popup asking "Please enter the URL of your link:" (like here on DP) and the url that the user types in replaces the words "PUT LINK HERE"?.

    Thanks :)

    You mean something like this?
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function populate( ) {
       var value = prompt("Please enter the URL of your link:", "")
       document.forms[0].a_answer.value = "[link=" + value + "][/link]";
    }
    </script>
    
    <a href="#" onclick="populate( );">
    Link Here
    </a>
    
    <form id="form1" name="form1" method="post">
    <textarea name="a_answer" cols="50" rows="5" id="a_answer"></textarea>
    </form>
