ApEx Select list with Redirect confirm change

We recently had a situation that required a little bit of head scratching. We had a page with a Select List with Redirect that was used to populate some form fields based on the contents of the Select List. The users could change the values in the form and save them, but if they changed the Select List before using the 'Save' button then the changes would be lost. What we wanted to do was add a confirmation message to make sure the user saved the details before changing the Select List.

Recently we had to make a couple of minor tweaks to a couple of ApEx theme images stored in an XE installation.

Luckily, it's also very easy!
