i am trying to use a confirm alert so should the user cancel then no further action will be called. however, it is still calling the ajax call even if i click cancel. it is appearing as line 4 in the attached code. can someone show me the error? many thanks
function edit(com, grid) {
			if (com == 'Edit') {
        	if($('.trSelected').length>0){
            		confirm("Are you sure you wish to edit this record?");
            }
            var items = $('.trSelected');
            var itemlist ='';
            for(i=0;i<items.length;i++){
                itemlist+= items[i].id.substr(3);
            }
         $.ajax({
            type: "POST",
            dataType: "json",
            url: "boxedit.php",
            data: "items="+itemlist,
            success: function(data){
            id = data.id;
			custref = data.custref;
			status = data.status;
			//confirm("Are you sure you wish to edit: "+data.id+"\n"+data.custref);
			$.facybox({ div: '#fileeditform' }); 
			$("#facybox").find("#id").attr({value: id });
            $("#facybox").find("#custref").attr({value: custref });
			$("#facybox").find("#boxref").attr({value: status });
			$("#flex1").flexReload();
            }
			
          });
           
            /*and so on then you can call facybox*/
          //$("#flex1").flexReload();
         
        } else{
            alert('Please select a row to edit.');

@mplungjan : check line 33

we've :

if($('.trSelected').length>0){
   inssert row
}
else {
   alert('Please select a row to edit.');
}

length>0 of but the user answer no so we get the alert : Please select a row to edit.
