Delete Confirmation in ASP.NET GridView

While using GridView in ASP.NET, you will not be able to write OnClientClick code for asp:CommandField Link / Button directly. However, if you want to generate Confirmation for Delete Link / Button, you have to write Client Confirmation code from back end at RowDataBound Event of GridView. Have a look at this code snippet.

protected void trialGridView_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            // reference the Delete LinkButton
            LinkButton deleteButton = (LinkButton)e.Row.Cells[1].Controls[0];
            deleteButton.OnClientClick = "return confirm('Are you sure, you want to delete this Record ?');";
        catch(Exception exception)
