Display confirmation when gridview delete link is clicked

Hi Experts,

I have a gridview with a delete link.

                    <asp:LinkButton  ID="lnkDelete" runat="server" Text="Delete" CommandName ="Delete" OnClientClick="return confirm     ('Are you sure you want to delete?')"></asp:LinkButton>

With the confirmation I want to add some other values from the Row. So it will be easier to understand. For example there is a date called event date.  I want to include that date in the confirmation message.

Thank you

You need to replace the OnClientClick implementation in your mark up with a server based implementations (RowDataBound event) as shown in this article:
Note: Example is in C# but it is simple to follow.
