Dynamically generated Javascript Comfirm/Redirect links

I know a lot about ASP and databases, but javascript just boggles me. =]

I have a bunch of 'delete' links on a page that have a lot of power behind them. I want to add a confirmation window to confirm the delete before it happens.

I found this code that seems to provide the functionality i want:
<a href="#" onclick="Javascript:if (confirm('Confirm delete?')) {window.location.href = 'b.html logmeout=true'; return false}">Delete</a>

But what i need to do is write the code into a function and be able to write out onclicks for each item in the recordset that will send their unique IDs to the function so it redirects to the correct URL that executes the delete.

Here's the ASP line inside a WHILE loop, reading from a SQL Recordset:
Response.write "<a href='sites.asp?co=" & intCompanyID & "&dv=" & intDivisionID & "&deleteSite=" & rsSite("S_ID").Value & "'>Delete</a>"

It's always going to go to sites.asp.
intCompanyID and intDivisionID are defined at the beginning of the page.
rsSite("S_ID") is the site ID being looped from the recordset.

What would be awesome is a javascript function to put in the script tags at the top of the page, and a small tag i can add to my links like

<a href="#" onclick="Javascript:deleteConfirm(1,3,123)">Delete</a>
or in the ASP loop it would look like:
response.write "<a href='#' onclick='Javascript:deleteConfirm(=" & intCompanyID & "," & intDivisionID & "," & rsSite("S_ID").Value" & "')">Delete</a>

Thanks

Hi

Er... you mean like this?

<script language="javascript">
<!--

function deleteConfirm(compId,intDivId,sid) {
   if (confirm("Confirm delete?")) {
      window.location.href = "sites.asp?co=" + compId.toString() + "&dv=" + intDivId.toString() + "&deleteSite=" + sid.toString();
   }
}

// -->
</script>

Yes. Thats great!

Can you confirm the proper syntax for the href?:

<a href="#" onclick="Javascript:deleteConfirm(1,3,123)">Delete</a>

Does that look ok?

Thanks
Mike

If you have deleteConfirm(1,3,123), the resulting href should be

sites.asp?co=1&dv=3&deleteSite=123

Yep, looks fine. You might want to take out the javascript: prefix though. that's mainly for the href even though you can use it here.
