    Smile javascript confirm before submission of form

    i don't even know if this is possible:

    i have text, the word "Delete" as a form. i want to confirm before submission.

    i want to click, confirm, then submit. the "onsubmit" attribute of the form is being completely ignored.

    form code:

    Code:
    <form action="admin.php" method="post" name="bdel3" onsubmit="return confdelete()">
    <a href="admin.php" onclick="document.bdel3.submit(); return false">Delete</a></form>
    javascript function:

    Code:
    function confdelete() {
    	var answer = confirm("delete?")
    	if (answer) return true;
    	else return false
    }
    needless to say i'm no JS expert ^^

    any ideas gratefully received

    Replace the link with an actual submit button. Calling the submit method of a form element does not trigger the onsubmit event.

    lovely, works a treat..spot on m8.

    thx for your help Dok



    just out of a pedantic interest, would it be possible to create a rollover for the submission button? (i doubt it)

    i.e. just to spoof the underline rollover of text?

    it's only for a non-public facing content admin page of a client site, so it's not important but was jus' wonderin'?


    just as an after question, on adding this image i get these two new values in my post array?!

    [edit_x] => 26
    [edit_y] => 2

    wtf?!

    I don't understand what you mean.

    you know, the underline onmouseover hover of a text link...?

    i've made small gif's out of the text, so it looks like a text link..

    it's not important, just wondering if there was a way of doing it..
