Alert box popup with hidden input

P: 5

I have a bit of a problem where I want to be able to type a word, for example 'SHOWIT' and I wan't an alert box to show with a message. Now when I say I want to type the word, I don't mean into an input box, I just want to type it 'on' the page and as soon as the word is complete the alert should show, so there is no need to press enter.


I am on and I type 'SHOWIT' and an alert box pops up and displays a message.

Is this possible? I'm just learning the ropes of JS, although I am confident in HTML/CSS/PHP.

Any help or pointers appreciated.

Thanks in advance :-)
