PHP Code for Pop Up Message

I have the following line of code in one of my .php pages.

<td> <center> <a href="assign.php?id=<?php echo $row['fid'];?>"> <center> Assign </center> </a> </center> </td>

Open in new window


When a user clicks on the ASSIGN link on th epage they get sent to the assign.php page. My question is, how can I edit this line of code so when a user clicks the ASSIGN link, a pop up box will pop up saying are you sure, bla bla bla, if so click OK" & once they click OK, they get sent to the assign.php page?

I've tried using javascript onclick commands but just can't seem to get it right. Can someone help me out?

You can actually use the return value from confirm() directly to cancel the click on the link:
<a href="assign.php?id=x" onclick="return confirm('Are you sure?');"> <center> Assign </center> </a>

Open in new window

Use:

Var result=confirm('some Message');

I think that's more than I need in the example from the website. I tried this & it's not working either:

<td><center><a href="assign.php?id=<?php echo $row['fid'];?>"> Var result=confirm('some Message');Assign</center></a></td>
