visual force page should display alert only when the field changes values

I wrote the following page and controller. 
The page displays an alert when field equals a specific value.
I want the alert to display when the value is changed to that value.

Here is the page

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity" extensions="OpportunityController"> <script> window.onload = function() { var servicestatus= "{!servstatus}"; var servicename = "{!servname}"; var hasprcomment= "{!hasprcomments}"; if(typeof(servicestatus) != "undefined" && typeof(servicename) != "undefined") { if( hasprcomment== 'false') { alert('Please be aware that you are closing a service that does not have any pr comments in the related account'); } } }; </script> </apex:page>

This is the controller
public with sharing class OpportunityController 
  public id serviceID;
    Public opportunity servRec{get;set;}
    Public account accountRec{get;set;}
    public string Servname{get; set;}
    public string ServStatus{get;set;}
    public boolean hasprcomments{get;set;}
    public OpportunityController(ApexPages.StandardController controller) 
     Serviceid = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id');
      if(serviceid != null)
          ServRec= [select id, account_name__c, stagename, Service_status__C from Opportunity where id =:serviceId];
         if(servrec.account_name__c!= null)  
         accountRec = [select id,pr_comment__C from account where id =:servrec.account_name__C];
         if(accountrec.pr_comment__C==null&& (servrec.StageName== 'closed'|| servrec.Service_Status__c== 'closed'))
           hasprcomments= false;
           hasprcomments= true;

Hi Aidei,


Please try the below sample code and change accordingly.
function saveClick() {
var caseStatus = document.getElementById('j_id0:j_id2:CaseStatus');

if(caseStatus.value == 'Closed')
    alert("Case is Closed.");

Kindly mark it as best answer if it helps so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,
