    I am creating a page with the usual feature to access a DB and edit.

    I have the common delete command in the datalist. But I need to create
    a prompt to display and ask the user again if they really want to
    delete this record.

    But I am a bit puzzled as to how to go about this when you are dealing
    with a datalist delete command. As I don't want to lose the details,
    of the selected to be deleted item on page reload. Would I need to use

    Since the user prompt was pretty useful and may be needed for other
    times. I was thinking of creating a generic one with 2 buttons (Yes &
    No). But then I would need to assign different command functions to be
    executed depending on what the prompt is asking. I know you can assign
    numerous buttons to a function, but how about the other way. I.e. one
    button with numerous functions and where a function will be executed
    depending on what is being asked? Or is this impossible? Or is there a
    nifty way to implement this than having all the functions in one big
    function and using a select statement.

    This is great but is there anyway to have this attribute work only if
    certain values are entered in a textbox, so you can bypass the
    confirmation if "safer" values are entered.

    Also because these controls are in a datalist accessing them is a lot
    harder as I can only modify them in the OnItemDataBound function.
