How do I add a PHP Variable to the onclick confirm statement. Right now i can get it to only say are you sure you want to delete this? I would like to replace the "this" with a php variable $ID but its not working.
<a href='.$deletethis.$row[$colID].'" onclick="javascript:return confirm(\'Are you sure you want to delete this?\')">'.$deleteIMG.'</a>';

Open in new window
