How to display a client-side confirm dialog box if the user clicks on the first row in my datagrid

I could n implement that, this what I tried:

I define my datagrid with :  <ItemTemplate> <a id="MenuItem".......><%#container............>  pls check my aspx html code bellow.

Thn, In the ItemDataBound event handler of my datagrid, I test if

e.Item.ItemIndex=0, if so, I create an object of type control and assign it to e.item.controls(0) , then I try to add the client side property: atributes(....) to that control.

The pb is: the control object that I create doesn t take the client property :  attributes(“onclick”)=….

My question is:  What type are my <a href …> tags and how can I refer to them in  my code behind. How can I create a control that I assign to that tag so that I can add the attributes(“onclick”) property. What type is it gonna be behind the code?

  <%@ Control Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="MenuLeft.ascx.vb" Inherits="WebApplication3.Menu_Left" TargetSchema="" %>

<asp:datagrid BorderWidth="0" GridLines="None" CellSpacing="10" id="dgMenuLeft" Height="0" AutoGenerateColumns="False"

            Runat="server" ShowHeader="False">

            <AlternatingItemStyle VerticalAlign="Top"></AlternatingItemStyle>




                                        <a id="MenuItem" href='Matrix_portal.aspx?command=<%#container.dataitem("menuURL")%>'>

I built a LinkButton buttoncolumn instead of <a...>  tag
then I do in Mydatagrid.itemdatabound handler: 
if e.itemindex=0 then
ctype(e.item.cells(0).controls(0),LinkButton).attributes("onclick")= "confirm return('do u want to confirm?');"

Thanks a lot, I appreciate your taking the time to help me.

Jscript, moving from client-side to server-side (.NET)
Hey all I’m working translating a web-app written in client-side Jscript to run on the server-side as JScript.NET. Without needing to get too specific, I am using Jscript because the original page aggregated raw data to produce statistical results (this was done dynamically based on user 'sort-by' options). The final output is an html report that can be emailed. Because this is currently being done on the client side, as the raw data grows the load-time grows as well (to the point that has almost become unusable). I’m posting here to see if anyone has any experi...
