Say for example, this is how you confirm a deletion. You can do other things like this:

For a ASP.NET 2 solution, you can also use OnClientClick, described near the end of this article:

Hi All,
I got the solution. I used the following code

Protected Sub dgDesignation_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles dgDesignation.RowDataBound
            If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
                For Each ctl As Control In e.Row.Cells(1).Controls

                    If TypeOf ctl Is LinkButton Then
                        Dim link As LinkButton = CType(ctl, LinkButton)
                        If link.CommandName = "Update" Then
                            link.OnClientClick = "return ValidateUpdate('" + e.Row.Cells(0).Controls(0).ClientID + "');"

                        End If

                    End If


                Dim l As LinkButton
                l = CType(e.Row.FindControl("lnkDelete"), LinkButton)
                l.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:return confirm('Are you sure you want to delete this record?')")
            End If
        End Sub
