You'll write an onclick event that will return the row values to you. You'd need a unique identifier for the row (like a unique ID)

Once you have the unique ID, you can use XMLHttp to run a PHP file and pass it that value. The PHP will then delete the record out of the database.


1) On click/select of a row, return the unique value of the row you clicked (normally into a hidden field)
2) Use XMLHttp to get Javascript to execute a server side script (could be ASP,PHP etc) and pass it that value.
3) You server side script would then delete the record out of the database based on the value you passed to it.

Good luck
