prompt to save changes in datagrid in editmode if user tries to navigate away

P: n/a

I have a custom datagrid control that works great. But I was thinking
about adding some functionality to it. Currently, I use the datagrid
to display one record at a time, and with item templates, if you click
the edit button, the datagrid becomes a nice form to make changes.
Kinda like a big rolodex, and as you page you flip thru each record

My question is this: how can I have some kind of server side script
(and javascipt) on the pages which contain the datagrid (quite a
few...), so that it can detect if the grid is in edit mode and will
confirm if the user wants to save the changes made, before clicking
away to another link on the page that is not the 'save' link? This
will be mimicking the windows app 'Exit without saving?' popup, so if
users make changes to a record and forget to push the save button, and
decide to click somewhere else on the page, it will tell them...hey
you need to save!

If you anyone has any ideas on how to implement this, please let me
know. I appreciate all of your help.
