After I click on a button to delete a single record, I want a sweet alert to display but I don't know if it can be done using php or if it would have to be done using ajax?

This is the button which is in a form with method of "post":

 <input type="submit" class="btn btn-danger btn-fill" name="delete_comment" value="Delete message">

Open in new window


Here is my function:

function delete_contact_message($link) {
	
	if(isset($_POST['delete_comment'])){
		
		$stmt = $link->prepare("DELETE FROM `contact_form` WHERE `contact_id` = ?");
		$stmt->bind_param("i", $contact_id);
		$contact_id = clean_input($_GET['contact_id']);
		$stmt->execute();
		$stmt->close();
		
		
	} 
}

Open in new window


And this is what I want to appear once the function runs and the record is deleted:

	<script>
	swal(
  'Success!',
  'Message deleted.',
  'success'
)
	</script>

Open in new window
