Many of you might have come across the situation where you need to making server side discussion based on client side JavaScript confirm message value. Though this may sound very basic feature, surprisingly large developers struggle when implementing this. In this article, I will show you how to.
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="Server">

  <table style="margin-top:100px;">
    <tr style="padding-bottom:10px">
        <asp:Label ID="lblitemName" Text="Item Value" runat="server">
        <asp:TextBox ID="txtitemval" runat="server"> </asp:TextBox>

  <div style="padding-bottom:10px">
    <asp:Label ID="lblMsg" runat="server"></asp:Label>

  <div style=" margin-bottom:100px; margin-left:120px">
    <asp:HiddenField ID="hdnField" runat="server" Value="false" />
    <asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" runat="server" Text="Check Val" OnClick="btnSubmits_Click" />


And the code behind for this page is like

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Data.SqlClient;

public partial class Test : System.Web.UI.Page
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


    protected void btnSubmits_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string itemValue = Convert.ToString(txtitemval.Text);
        if (hdnField.Value == "false")
            lblMsg.Visible = false;
        else if (hdnField.Value == "true")
            lblMsg.Visible = true;
            lblMsg.Text = string.Format("You have entered {0}", itemValue);
            hdnField.Value = "false";

    private void AddJavascriptCode(string itemValue)
        string script = @"< script language=""JavaScript"" type=""text/javascript"">
var IsConfirm = 1;
objField = document.getElementById('" + hdnField.ClientID + @"');
objSubmit = document.getElementById('" + btnSubmit.ClientID + @"');
IsConfirm = newConfirm('Test','You have entered " + itemValue + @" value. Are you sure you want to go next page?',1,1,0);
if(IsConfirm == true)
objField.value = 'true';;
objField.value = 'false';
function newConfirm(title,mess,icon,defbut,mods)
if (document.all)
retVal = confirm(mess);
retVal = (retVal==1)
retVal = confirm(mess);
return retVal;
        Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "Test", script);

The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
