using "return false" in my event handler

P: 2,476
what concept i have that when i wrting my own event handler then if my handler returns false then the default event handler will no more execute.
so i can stop the window default behaviours
sometimes i get the fruitful result but sometimes not

as for example ....

<body onunload = test>

function test()
alert(message); //flashes the message but i can't stop the defalut behaviours
return false;

i mean to say that the page cann't refreshed or not to closed
is it possible friends

plz help me out .....
thanks in advance
