I have a Repeater, it has 4 different commands for each item, I want to throw a popup box asking the user to CONFIRM the action they requested, they can say NO and nothing happends or YES and the event fires. Is there a way to do this? Is there any Confirm Control I can tie to a single button on my Repeater?

Thanks

Hello victorbello,

The answer is yes, in principle you need to add a client-side script to the click event of each button. Now how to do that may vary depending on whether you are running asp.net 1.1 or 2+, I am guessing 2.0 or higher so you will need to add the onclientclick attribute e.g.,

<asp:button id="something" onclientclick="return confirm('Are you sure you want to do this?');" />

Using this it will either postback if you confirm the action or do nothing if you cancel it.

Regards,

add this to your buttons:

OnClientClick="return confirm('Are you sure?');"

It works, but I have another quick question, how do I get a linebreak on the text? I have a LONG text, i want a line break to show different lines, is it possible? I tried <br /> and Environment.NewLine but nothing, any ideas?
