asp.net gridview onclientclick parameter

I have a gridview with a column containing an asplink button which will delete the record in that row.  I could not figure out how to do it in the code behind so here is what it looks like in the page code:

<asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" CausesValidation="False"
                            CommandName="Delete" Text="Delete" OnClientClick="return confirm('Are you sure you want to delete this Employee?');"></asp:LinkButton>

I would like to add some more detail (a column or two in the gridview) to the message such as the employee first and last name.

That looks like a great example and I can get the pop up message to appear but I cannot get it to pass the parameter.  I have tried this in a gridview which has textbox item template fields and also label fields.  Can it be that this method does not work with template fields?  This is the line which should be retrieving the parameter and I think is the problem I am running into.  Does it look correct?

Dim id As String = e.Row.Cells(3).Text

I changed the line above to this and it worked.

Dim id As String = TryCast(e.Row.FindControl("textBox1"), TextBox).Text()
