Difficulties proceeding after modal option was selected
I have a problem understanding how jQuery works when offering two options to select from. Currently I am in the process of jquery'ing some php code where user interaction is involved. Let me give you an example:
Let's say I want a user to confirm deleting an item form a db table. With php I build a form with a hidden tag (say "confirmDelete" = '1'), reload the page, look if $_GET['confirmDelete'] or $_POST['confirmDelete'] == '1' and finally run my query ("DELETE FROM $table bla...").
Now, while I am able to build a nice pop-up with jQuery UI asking if the user really wants to delete some item, I still don't get the point how to continue. I miss the code between confirmation and db query. In other words: How do "return" to my php code with the post or get var "confirmDelete" set to '1'?
Any hint, link oder code sample is highly appreciated.
