Delete Record pop up box - include record name?

Delete Record pop up box - include record name?

Just wondering if its possible to include a specific reference to the record about to be deleted in the delete record pop up box?

If I have a results page, with a delete button to the right for each record, it would be useful to reference it in the message in case the user had clicked the button immediately above or below the record they meant to.

I tried changing:

This will permanently remove this record from your database.

To include the field from the query:

This will permanently remove <?php echo($row_WADAactivities2['Activity']); ?> from your database.

but it doesn't get picked up.

If there is an easy enough tweak to include that, that would be appreciated.

Thank you!

the delete button uses an on click event to pass the ID of the item being deleted to the WADADeleteRecordID From Element. For example, here is the delete button code for my Results page:

php:
<input type="button" class="formButton ResultsPageButton unstyled DeleteButton" value="" onclick="document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordID').value=<?php echo($row_WADAitems['ItemID']); ?>;document.getElementById('deleteBox').style.display = 'block';document.getElementById('deleteMessage').style.display = 'table';" />



this portion passes the ID to the WADADeleteRecordID form element:

php:
document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordID').value=<?php echo($row_WADAitems['ItemID']); ?>;



to pass the name column, you would need to add another condition to the onclick event:

php:
<input type="button" class="formButton ResultsPageButton unstyled DeleteButton" value="" onclick="document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordID').value=<?php echo($row_WADAitems['ItemID']); ?>;document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordName').innerHTML='<?php echo($row_WADAitems['ItemName']); ?>';document.getElementById('deleteBox').style.display = 'block';document.getElementById('deleteMessage').style.display = 'table';" />



the portion i added is:

php:
document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordName').innerHTML='<?php echo($row_WADAitems['ItemName']); ?>';



this will pass the name to an element with the ID WADADeleteRecordName, so the final step is to add a span tag with the ID "WADADeleteRecordName" to the delete message, for example:

This will permanently remove <span id="WADADeleteRecordName">name</span> from your database.



the onclick event will replace "name" in this code:
<span id="WADADeleteRecordName">name</name>

with the name from your database.

Thanks Jason. Sorry its been a while, but just looking at this now.

I changed the input button code to:

<input type="button" class="deleteButton" value="" onclick="document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordID').value=<?php echo($row_WADAactivities['ActivityID']); ?>;document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordName').innerHTML='<?php echo($row_WADAactivities['Activity']); ?>';document.getElementById('deleteBox').style.display = 'block';document.getElementById('deleteMessage').style.display = 'table';" />



And changed the message to include:

This will permanently remove the following keyword: <span id="WADADeleteRecordName">name</name>.<br/>

Its partly working - the Activity is being displayed correctly, but nothing after that, including the delete and cancel buttons.

Thanks Jason - attached here. Note that there are four queries in the page, and I've just changed it for the delete button for the first, WADAactivities.

this code:

php:
This will permanently remove the following keyword: <span id="WADADeleteRecordName">name</name>.<br/>




should be:

php:
This will permanently remove the following keyword: <span id="WADADeleteRecordName">name</span>.<br/>




that was a typo in my original reply.

Thanks Jason - I should have spotted that, but I was probably focusing more on making I had the other bit of code correct.
