you can do the same type of think using Simple Modal library, which can be placed in your static resource.

can you explain bit more . in fcat i would like this pop up to come on its own after save . some sections of the code is not making sense :((

popups are not the best tool for what you describe, they are not easy to make work and won't override buttons.

 

instead you should use validation rules or visualforce error messages to inform the user about data on the page when attempting to save.

 

are you trying to block a save?

or send the user somewhere after a save?
