How to show confirm message while deleting grid view row.


Introduction:
In my previous article I have explained about Code used to How to generate random strings/passwords using c#.net. In this article I am going to explain about how to show the confirmation message while deleting the row from the grid view using c#.net.

Explanation:
For the explanation purpose I have created table with cities named tempCities and created two procedures one for inserting and another one for deleting.

Below is the script used.
CREATE TABLE tempCities(Id int identity,Cityname Varchar(50))
GO
INSERT INTO tempCities VALUES(‘Chennai’)
INSERT INTO tempCities VALUES(‘Bangalore’)
INSERT INTO tempCities VALUES(‘Delhi’)
INSERT INTO tempCities VALUES(‘Kolkatta’)
INSERT INTO tempCities VALUES(‘Mumbai’)
GO
CREATE PROC getTempCities
AS
BEGIN
            SET NOCOUNT ON
            SELECT Id,Cityname FROM TempCities
            SET NOCOUNT OFF
END
GO
CREATE PROC deleteTempCities(@Id INT)
AS
BEGIN
            SET NOCOUNT ON
            DELETE FROMTempCities WHERE ID=@Id
            SET NOCOUNT OFF
END
GO


Then I have a grid view control in my page which will show the city details

</div>
</form>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
    functionfnConfirm() {
        if(confirm(“The item will be deleted. Are you sure want to continue?”) == true)
            returntrue;
        else
            returnfalse;
    }

    {
        if(!IsPostBack)
        {
            BindData();
        }
    }
    private void BindData()
    {
        DataSetds = new DataSet();
        using (SqlConnection sqlConn = newSqlConnection(sqlConnStr))
        {
            using(SqlCommand sqlCmd = new SqlCommand())
            {
                sqlCmd.Connection = sqlConn;
                sqlCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                sqlCmd.CommandText = “getTempCities”;
                using(SqlDataAdapter sqlAdp = new SqlDataAdapter(sqlCmd))
                {
                    sqlAdp.Fill(ds);
                }
            }
        }
        grdResults.DataSource = ds;
        grdResults.DataBind();

    protected void lbDelete_Click(objectsender, EventArgs e)
    {
        LinkButtonlnkbtn = sender as LinkButton;
        GridViewRowgrdRow = lnkbtn.NamingContainer as GridViewRow;
        stringCityid = grdResults.DataKeys[grdRow.RowIndex].Value.ToString();
        using (SqlConnection sqlConn = newSqlConnection(sqlConnStr))
        {
            using(SqlCommand sqlCmd = new SqlCommand())
            {
                if(sqlConn.State == ConnectionState.Closed)
                    sqlConn.Open();
                sqlCmd.Connection = sqlConn;
                sqlCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                sqlCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue(“@Id”, Cityid);
                sqlCmd.CommandText = “deleteTempCities”;
                sqlCmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
                sqlConn.Close();
            }
        }
        BindData();
    }
