    I am attempting to place a confirm delete prompt message on a RadButton in a GridTemplateColumn.  Depending on the browser, I am getting mixed results, none of which are acceptable.

    In Edge and Chrome, Pressing the delete button pops the message up, but pressing Ok or Cancel will pop the message up second time immedately, and pressing Ok or Cancel on the second message will perform the action desired (Cancel will close message and do nothing, Ok will fire DeleteCommand on server side)

    In IE11, pressing the Ok or Cancel will show the confirm message only once.  Ok will run the DeleteCommand routine as expected.  However, Cancel will ignore the cancel and ALSO run the DeleteCommand routine.  

    My guess is whatever is causing the issue to show a double-message in Edge or Chrome is being ignored in IE and it just fires the delete command regardless of what button was pressed on the confirm message.

    Here are some code snippets:


        <telerik:RadGrid OnItemCreated="RadGrid1_ItemCreated" ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" Skin="Simple" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="true" >

    Hello Mark,

    The following demo shows how to confirm the click on a RadButton in several ways, so you need to take one of those approaches, the provided code is suitable for a standard asp:Button only:

    For your convenience I am attaching here the simplest example with a browser confirm as a reference point.

    The sample can be tweaked in a variety of ways - you can use a RadConfirm instead, you can use hidden fields or other data-attributes to store data, or even the client-side data-key collections of the grid. Alternatively, you can use a standard button that the generic confirmation cna work with and style it as needed, considering how you are already styling the RadButton with your own styles - it may well be easier to create a few rules of your own than override already existing stylesheets.

    Good catch.  I did convert a Asp button to a radbutton. 

    That solution worked great!

    Thanks for your assistance.
