dnnConfirm jQuery Plugin

Last updated long time ago



(Enter the content of this article below)


This article is for a specific plugin. Please be sure to read the Introduction and Overview to jQuery Plugins which provides an introduction to the plugins.


Another wrapper for the jQuery UI dialog plug-in. Use dnnConfirm to make sure the user wants to perform an action – they’ll have the chance to confirm their intent or cancel the action.

The plugin is intended to be used on either links or buttons. This can be set by the isButton parameter , which has a default value of "false" to support links, which are the most expected use-case. If you want to use a button (such as an imagebutton), please change the isButton value to true, in which case the action will be performed on confirmation.

Available Options and their Defaults

text: 'Are you sure?', // message to display to user
yesText: 'Yes', // "confirm" button text
noText: 'No', // "deny" button text
title: 'Confirm', // title text
dialogClass: 'dnnFormPopup', // class used for dialog
isButton: false // if false will follow href, if true will perform button action

In addition, the plugin can accept any of the "core" jQuery UI modal options: Please note that the "buttons" option will be overridden, however. As this plugin is meant to only display the "confirm" or "deny" buttons.

Usage Example


<asp:LinkButton CssClass="dnnSecondaryAction dnnLogDelete" ID="btnClear" resourcekey="btnClear" runat="server" />


$('#<%= btnClear.ClientID %>').dnnConfirm({
text: '<%= LocalizeString("ClearLog.Text") %>',
yesText: '<%= Localization.GetString("Yes.Text", Localization.SharedResourceFile) %>',
noText: '<%= Localization.GetString("No.Text", Localization.SharedResourceFile) %>',
title: '<%= Localization.GetString("Confirm.Text", Localization.SharedResourceFile) %>'
