Building pages to delete a record (ASP and JSP)
Your application can contain a page that lets users delete existing records in a database table. A delete page is usually a detail page working in tandem with a results page. The results page lets the user select a record to delete, then passes the choice to the delete page.
A delete page has four building blocks:
- A filtered recordset to retrieve the record from a database table (see Retrieving the record to delete (ASP and JSP))
- A read-only display of the data about to be deleted (see Displaying the data to be deleted (ASP and JSP))
- A Submit button to send the delete command to the server (see Sending the delete command to the server (ASP and JSP))
- A Delete Record server behavior to update the database table (see Deleting the record from the database table (ASP and JSP))
The delete page can contain only one record-editing server behavior at a time. For example, you cannot add an Insert Record or an Update Record server behavior to the delete page.
