ASP in Javascript Alert Message

P: 4
Hi everyone,

I have, what I hope, will be a simple question. I have a basic JS function to pop-up a confirm delete dialog box when deleting a record from a DB:

function confirmDelete()
var agree=confirm("Confirm record deletion?");
if (agree)
return true ;
return false ;

and the call in the ASP:

<a onClick='return confirmDelete();' href='deleteRecord.asp?id=" & rec("ID") & "'>

This is working perfectly. What I want to know is if there's a way to insert the rec("ID") into the JS alert message, to produce the following:

"Confirm record 1234 deletion?" or "Confirm record 9384 deletion?"

I don't know if this is even possible, but it sure would look nice! Thanks in advance!

Well in the URL, I see "delete.asp?id=" . So you are sending a variable via GET. It should be accessible in ASP.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <%
  2. id = request.querystring("id")
  3. &>
  5. Confirm record <%=id%> for deletion?
