Javascript Alert dialog on href-link while delete

The simplest way to show alert while deleting your record using anchor tag is

  <a href="/userProfile/{{$userinfo->id}}/del" onclick="return confirm('Are you sure?')" class="user-delete"><i class="fa fa-trash" aria-hidden="true"></i> Delete</a>

Background image and providing padding to it

I have a select input and i want to put small image icon at the right of it with some padding on it. For this the easy solution is

My input

 <select placeholder="Filter By" class="searchuser userddl">
                    <option>Filter By</option>
                    <option>Recently Updated</option>
                    <option>Recently Deleted</option>

And the css to give background image along with some padding is:

select.searchuser.userddl {
    background: #000 url('/images/down-arrow.png');
    background-position: right 7px top 6px;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;

And the output appears as

Preview Image before it is uploaded

Today we are going to learn about Image preview before it is uploaded.

In your php file, you have code as shown below:

<form id="form1" runat="server">
        <input type='file' id="uploadFile" />
        <img id="imagePreview" src="#" alt="your image" />

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/imagePreview.js"></script>

Include your script file in your header or footer, and you have js file with the name imagePreview as shown below:

$(function() {
    $("#uploadFile").on("change", function()

        $( "#imagePreview" ).addClass( "giveImgStyle" );
        var files = !!this.files ? this.files : [];
        if (!files.length || !window.FileReader) return; // no file selected, or no FileReader support

        if (/^image/.test( files[0].type)){ // only image file
            var reader = new FileReader(); // instance of the FileReader
            reader.readAsDataURL(files[0]); // read the local file

            reader.onloadend = function(){ // set image data as background of div
                $("#imagePreview").css("background-image", "url("+this.result+")");
            alert('Please Select Image');

Then in your style sheet, add the style for giveImgStyle

    width: 180px;
    height: 180px;
    background-position: center center;
    background-size: cover;
    display: inline-block;

Then you are done. you get imagepreview as shown below
