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?

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>

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
