Select Question - Check boxes -Free Format

Hello,

I have a checkbox question with 18 response options .  12 minimum checks and 12 maximum checks.  My client would like for a message to pop-up when the 13 option is selected.  Is this possible?  I don't know how to do this.  I would appreciate any help.

Thank you

Can you elaborate on how the message is meant to work?  Is it an actual pop-up window or just some text that shows up somewhere?  Where?  Does the message go away after some time or once they're back under thirteen selections?

Use this JavaScript code in footer and update 21st line with number of selections and 23rd with pop-up message

var nos=0;
function SSI_CustomGraphicalCheckbox(GraphicalCheckboxObj, InputObj, blnCheck)
{
    var id=InputObj.id;
    var id1=InputObj.id.split("_")[1]; 
    var other=$("#"+id).closest('div.input_cell').next().find(".open_end_text_box").attr("id");
    if(blnCheck==false && other)
    {
        $('#'+other).removeClass("x");
        $('#'+other).val("");
    }
    //var ind1=ar1.indexOf(id1);
    if(blnCheck==true)    
    {
        nos++;
    }        
    if(blnCheck==false)    
    {
        nos--;
    }
    if(nos>=2)
    {
        var msg = 'Your error message goes here.';
        var div = $("<div>" + msg + "</div>");
        div.dialog({
            width: 500,
            height:'auto',
            modal: true,
            closeOnEscape: false,
            resizable: false,
            draggable: false,
               title: "Confirm",
            buttons: [
                        {
                            text: "Yes",
                            click: function () 
                                {
                                    div.dialog("close");
                                }
                        },
                        {
                            text: "No",
                             click: function () 
                                {                               
                                    div.dialog("close");
                                }
                        }
                    ]
        });
    }
}
