Prompt For Web Delete

In building Domino web applications most people use the standard
@Command([EditClear]) to add a delete button capability to a form. However,
there is no good way to ask a person "Are you sure" before the delete happens.
I used JavaScript and the "DeleteDocument" URL argument to get to the same
result. The code below uses the URL of the open form to create a new URL with
the DeleteDocument argument and only runs this URL if you anwser Yes to the
confirm prompt.

Note: You will likely want to create a $$ReturnDocumentDeleted form to get rid
of the standard Document Deleted response Domino provides when you delete a
document.
if (confirm("Are you sure you want to DELETE this document?")) {
var docURL = document.URL;
var end = parseInt(docURL.lastIndexOf('?'));
docURL = docURL.substring(0,end);
top.NotesView.location.href = docUNID + '?DeleteDocument';
}
