Question Verify Delete Button

I've created a GridView array with a "Delete" Button. I would like to insert a confirmation message to the user that they are about to delete this record - Continue Yes or No. I thought that there might be a jQuery function such as an extention to the "alert" function that could do this but I have not been able to find such a function. I would want it to process on the client and not have to come back to the server. Do you have any suggestions?

Hi there,

You can simply use onclick along with confirm:

<input id="delete" type="button" ... onclick="return confirm('Are you sure?');" />

Using jQuery you can hook up the alert like this instead:

$('#delete').click(function() {
return confirm('Are you sure');

The nice thing about the latter solution is that's easy to hook up the click handler to multiple buttons at once by changing your selector code.

Hope this helps,
