here is the autogenerated delete option, how can i add a delete confirmation message to it?

<asp:DetailsView ID="dvCCenter" runat="server" AutoGenerateRows="False" DataKeyNames="intCID"
        DataSourceID="CCenters" OnDataBound="CCenter_DataBound" AutoGenerateInsertButton="True"
Hi Suran78,

u cannot attach an javascript confirm message before delete for an autogenerated delete button...

u will have to create a templatefield with the delete button and attach the javascript as follows:

<asp:DetailsView ID="SampleDetailsView" runat="server" AutoGenerateDeleteButton="false">
                    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Test">
                            <asp:Label ID="TestLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Id") %>'>
                            <asp:Button ID="TestButton" runat="server" Text="Delete"
                             OnClientClick="return confirm('Are u Sure u want to Delete?')" />
