Helped me, maybe it helps someone else.

Just by putting the verb in there, it uses it. This way, CSRF is also utilized.

Not much changed here and the modal can be included like this:

dfsq's answer is very nice. I modified it a bit to fit my needs: I actually needed a modal for the case that, after clicking, the user would also be navigated to the corresponding page. Executing the query asynchronously is not always what one needs.

Here's a snippet of it in action (click "Run code snippet" below):

The library exposes three methods designed to mimic their native JavaScript equivalents. Their exact method signatures are flexible as each can take various parameters to customise labels and specify defaults, but they are most commonly called like so:

Unfortunately, the moment you need non-english text on title and buttons you either have to modify the JS or start parameterizing almost as much as just adding the bootstrap html and JS yourself. :)

For this task you can use already available plugins and bootstrap extensions. Or you can make your own confirmation popup with just 3 lines of code. Check it out.

Here #confirm-delete points to a modal popup div in your HTML. It should have an "OK" button configured like this:

Here is an original version of the code I made when I was answering this question for Bootstrap 2.3 modal.

I realize that in some cases there might be needed to perform POST or DELETE request rather then GET. It it still pretty simple without too much code. Take a look at the demo below with this approach:

One tweak is the final delete request should result in a post, not a GEt as you would with a link. If you allow Delete's on a GET, then malicious third parties can easily craft links on sites or emails that cause your user's to unwittingly delete things. It might seem silly, but there are scenarios where this would be a serious security problem.

Say we have this links (note data-href instead of href) or buttons that we want to have delete confirmation for:

This works almost perfectly but even in the fiddle version (as in my site), the id isn't passed to the Yes button in the modal. I did notice that you're trying to replace &ref instead of ?ref so I tried changing that but it still isn't working. Am I missing something else here? This is otherwise great so TIA for your help!

Well just fix change regular expression a little jsfiddle.net/MjmVr/12

You might want to take a look at Vex. So much simpler to do what you're asking: jsfiddle.net/adamschwartz/hQump.

Great solution here. I made some slight modifications to handle a callback for the cancel link. One small recommendation use #! instead of # in your href to prevent the page from scrolling to the top.

So, here's my modified version of the generic confirm function that worked fine:

Thanks to @Jousby's solution, I managed to get mine working as well, but found I had to improve his solution's Bootstrap modal markup a bit to make it render correctly as demonstrated in the official examples.

Very nice solution. One more improvement I can suggest is to add another argument: btnType = "btn-primary" and then change the code for the OK button to contain class="btn ' + btnType + '". That way one can pass an optional argument to change the appearance of the OK button, like btn-danger for a delete.

@BenY It's not about whether the user has permission to do things or not, it's about malicious users that already have permission to do things being tricked into clicking links on other sites, emails etc so the malicious user can take advantage of that users permissions.

Even though the op forgot the attribution at first, this was the perfect thing for me. Works like a charm.

I think it's not a good idea delete items with a GET http request

I'd realise its a very old question, but since i wondered today for a more efficient method of handling the bootstrap modals. I did some research and found something better then the solutions which are shown above, that can be found at this link:

Momma told me not to click any cold fusion links

Please do not post code from other sources without attribution: petefreitag.com/item/809.cfm.

This way the confirmation modal is a lot more universal and so it can easily be re-used on other parts of your website.

bootbox.confirm("Are you sure to want to delete , function(result) {

    //here result will be true
    // delete process code goes here

    });

I can easily handle this type of task using bootbox.js library. At first you need to include bootbox JS file. Then in your event handler function simply write following code:

$('your-link-selector').confirmModal({

    confirmMessage: 'Are you sure you want to delete this?',
    confirmStyle: 'danger',
    confirmOk: '<i class="icon-trash icon-white"></i> Delete',
    confirmCallback: function (target) {
         //perform the deletion here, or leave this option
         //out to just follow link..
    }
});
$('your-link-selector').confirmModal();

There are various options you can apply to it, to make it look better when doing it to confirm a delete, I use:

To use it, include the .js file in your page then run:
