different confirm messages for different buttons

I have this confirm function, but I would like to be able to use different messages for different buttons.

As it is, only this: var message = "Really, for sure?" works. I put the other messages in vars, but I don't know how to access them.


function confirmSubmit(message){
                
                var editMess = "Press OK to confirm your edits.";
                var deleteMess =  "Are you sure you want to permanently delete this listing from the database?";
                
		var message = "Really, for sure?";
                
                var agree = confirm(message);
                    if (agree)
                            return true ;
                    else
                            return false ;
                }

Open in new window


these are my buttons, one for update, one for delete:

<a href='?delete={$data["mls"]}' onClick='return confirmSubmit()' class='deleteButton'>Delete</a>

<input type='submit' name='submit' value='Update' onClick='return confirmSubmit()'/>

Open in new window

You may try sending the message string from the onClick
function call from the button as below:

function confirmSubmit(message){

                var agree = confirm(message);
                    if (agree)
                            return true ;
                    else
                            return false ;
                }


<a href='?delete={$data["mls"]}' onClick="return confirmSubmit('Press OK to confirm your edits');" class='deleteButton'>Delete</a>

<a href='#' onClick="return confirmSubmit('Are you sure you want to permanently delete this listing from the database?');" class='deleteButton'>Delete</a>


<input type='submit' name='submit' value='Update' onClick="return confirmSubmit('Really, for sure?');"/>
