Default "confirm" dialog before processing dropdown event

I'm trying to get a confirm dialog box to fire before processing a dropdownbox 'onselectedindexchange' event.

I have a dropdownbox:

<asp:DropDownList ID="drpSelAction" Runat="server" OnSelectedIndexChanged="drpSelAction_SelectedIndex Changed" AutoPostBack="True">
        <asp:ListItem Text="Select Action..." Value="" />
        <asp:ListItem Text="" Value="" />
        <asp:ListItem Value="Edit Move Project" />
        <asp:ListItem Text="" Value="" />
        <asp:ListItem Value="Add Employees To Move">
        <asp:ListItem Text="" Value="" />
        <asp:ListItem Value="Delete Selected Employee Moves" />
        <asp:ListItem Value="Cancel Selected Employee Moves" />
        <asp:ListItem Value="Reactivate Selected Employee Moves" />

If the user selects "Delete Selected Employee Moves" I would like to have the drpSelAction_SelectedIndexChanged in the code-behind page prompt the user to confirm that they want to delete.

Here's the event code:

 public void drpSelAction_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        switch (drpSelAction.SelectedValue)
            case "Delete Employees":
            case "Cancel Employee Moves":
        case "Uncancel Employee Moves":
        drpSelAction.SelectedIndex = 0;

So before this kicks off - i need to get a confirmation dialog to come up.

Any help would be appreciated.

Try adding javascript code. THere should be a change event (onchange or onchanged) that fires when the item changes, then you can add:

return confirm('Are you sure you want to do this?')
