A Refactored Web Delete Button Script

This is based on "Prompt For Web Delete" from Michael Fromin, August 2000. I did this independently but I saw his script and used it to streamline mine. His had a typo which is fixed in my rewrite which I have made more generic, with inline comments. The only localized piece is the top 3 variables. The rest can be dropped into any design.

 // the key field, Unique ID field and default view are all set by you, the developer in your own db // A unique ID field must be set with an @text formula before it can be used // database-specific variables, your fieldnames may vary var Viewname="($All)"; var docKeyfield=Company.value; var docid=Uid.value; //generic variables based around current doc's URL var DocCmd="?Deletedocument"; var docURL = document.URL; var end = parseInt(docURL.lastIndexOf('?')); docUNID = docURL.substring(0,end); // create the URL to do the transaction var actURL=docUNID + DocCmd; // debug dialogs - uncomment to troubleshoot //alert ('actURL returns: ' + actURL) ; msg='Are You sure you want to DELETE this order for ' + docKeyfield + ' ?'; if (confirm(msg)) { window.location=actURL; }
