Display confirm message

In windows application, when user want to delete any information, usually a confirm message box’ll be launched, so if user really want to delete they must confirm this action again. In ASP.NET we can easily do the same in two ways:

1. Register confirm action inside the PreRender event to add javascript into the client side so it’ll operate when user click on the button.

private void Page_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
   btnDelete.Attributes.Add("OnClick", "return confirm('Do you really want to delete this row? No undo action is available')");

2. Add  “OnClientClick” event inside HTML code like this:

<asp:Button ID="btnDelete" runat="server" OnClientClick="javascript:return confirm('Do you really want to delete this row? No undo action is available');" />

Hope this help you!!!

    Just replace your delete command button and using the below code snipset

    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Handle">
               <asp:Button ID="btnEdit" Text="Edit" Width="70px" CommandName="Edit"  runat="server" />
               <asp:Button ID="btnDelete" Text="Delete" Width="70px" OnClientClick="return confirm('Do you want to delete this row?')"                            CommandName="Delete"  runat="server" />
                <asp:Button ID="btnUpdate" Text="Update" Width="70px" CommandName="Update" runat="server" />
                <asp:Button ID="btnCancel" Text="Cancel" Width="70px" CommandName="Cancel" runat="server" />

    hi there!
    In ASP.NET 2.0, there is a attributes called “OnClientClick” where you can add an javascript call directly (in ASP.NET 1.0 or 1.1 it does not exist). So if you still using ASP.NET 1.0 or 1.1 you must add attribute using the OnItemDataBound event

    In the ItemDataBound event, you add attribute for delete button like this

    Button btn = e.Item.FindControl(“btnDelete”) as Button;
    btn.Attributes.Add(“OnClick”, “return confirm(‘Do you really want to delete this item?’)”);

    you shound not add “OnClick” attribute at the delete event, because the attribute only apply for delete button after you click on that button

    Hope this help you!

    hi there sorry i try to follow tis tutorial here http://aspalliance.com/articleViewer.aspx?aId=786&pId=-1

    and its work but when i put in code error

    Invalid postback or callback argument. Event validation is enabled using in configuration or in a page. For security purposes, this feature verifies that arguments to postback or callback events originate from the server control that originally rendered them. If the data is valid and expected, use the ClientScriptManager.RegisterForEventValidation method in order to register the postback or callback data for validation.

    if im follow the tutorial its so easy and work and nothing to do wit vb code behind…ermmmm…is there anything u can giv me some tip?? thx ur advance:)
