Javascript confirm delete help

Hi,
Can anyone please tell me how I can get a confirmation popup box when clicking on a delete link.  
For example if the delete link is clicked a popup to appear asking are you sure you want to delete ad <?php echo $adid; ?>" then if yes is selected to go to to del_ad.php?adnum=<?php echo $adid; ?>

<a href="del_ad.php?adnum=<?php echo $adid; ?>" onClick="confirmDelete();">Delete</a>

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Try this


function confirmation(question)
{
	return confirm(question + " (OK = Yes   Cancel = No)");
}
 
<form action="del_ad.php?adnum=<?php echo $adid; ?>" method="get" onSubmit="return confirmation('This will delete the Album. Are you sure?');"><input type="submit" value="DELETE"/></form>

Something like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
 
<html>
<head>
<title>Confirm Delete</title>
<SCRIPT>
function confirmDelete(){
	var conf = confirm('Are you sure you want to delete!!!\r\nClick OK to proceed, or Cancel')
	if(conf)
	  return true;
	else
	  return false;
}
</SCRIPT>
</head>
<body>
<input type='button' name='Delete' value="Delete" onclick="return confirmDelete() "/>
</body>
</html>
