JavaScript on delete button

Hi all, 
 
Can i write JavaScript on delete button (in tool bar).
suppose in account record, user clicked on contacts ( left navigation pan ). 
Now in the list of the records, User selects any contact and  clicks on the 
delete button ( in tool bar). On click of the delete button i want to trigger 
my jScript to update few fields in parent (Account) form.
 
Any ideas?? How to achieve this ?
 
Thanks in advance.

You could add your JavaScript to the onload code of the account form, and set 
the onclick event of the delete button to your code, but you will run into 
issues pretty quickly because of the many ways a contact can be deleted.  The 
most supported way to do this is using a preDelete callout.  In CRM 4, you 
can write a workflow to fire when the contact is deleted, but since it the 
workflow fires after the delete occurs, you wouldn't be able to reference any 
fields on the contact record.

Thanks for the reply. Actually pre delete callout is not Woking for me.  
After registering the pre delete plug-in, its not allowing me to delete the 
record. while deleting it through error. Anyways I'll try to write JS to the 
onload of the account form, and call onclick event of the delete button.

Hi Chandan,

It is not nessesary to have the plugin fire pre-delete, it can fire
post delete and simply read the pre-image for values in the now-
deleted record. But I do agree with Richard, using javascript is not
the best way to do this because of the numerous ways of deleting a
record. Your javascript will only work on the delete of the record in
the associated view.

I also wouldn't mind if it was a pre-delete javascript.  We've looked at 
using a PreDelete callout, but we've had trouble getting it to work with our 
extension entity.
