jQuery UI replacement for javascript:confirm() links

Here is a nice confirmation handler to replace javascript:confim() links using jQuery UI…

$(function() {
    $('.ui-icon-trash').click(function(event){
        event.preventDefault();
        var targetUrl = $(this).attr('href');
        $('<div title="Confirmation Required"><p>Delete this record?</p></div>').dialog({
            autoOpen: true,
            modal: true,
            resizable: false,
            buttons: {
                Yes: function() {
                    window.location.href = targetUrl;
                },
                No: function() {
                    $(this).remove();
                }
            }
        });
    });
});

I use it for “delete” links (should be obvious) but it can be easily adjusted for any other type of confirmation.

Cheers!
