Delete webgrid row using jQuery?

You can easily delete a row from webgrid but what if you have to delete 10 records with a confirmation message, you have to do 20 clicks that irritates to overcome this, we are adding checkbox column to webgrid, while deleting select records using checkbox and click delete button which will ask you for confirmation and put a ajax call to delete selected record.

    var grid = new WebGrid(Model.students);
<div id="gridContent" style="padding:20px;">
mode: WebGridPagerModes.All,
            grid.Column(columnName: "Student Name", header: "Name", format: @<text>@item.Name</text>) ,
            grid.Column(header: "Delete", format: @<text>@Html.CheckBox("chk") </text>)

Now on clicking of delete button call DeleteStudent() function which will loop through each row and find out checked rows from grid and pass those ids to controller to delete record from Database after confirmation remove same rows from webgrid using jquery

<script type="text/javascript">
    function DeleteStudent() {
        if (confirm("Are you sure to delete records")) {
            $('#gridContent table tr').each(function () {
                if ($(this).find("input[id*='chkStudent']").length > 0) {
                    if ($(this).find("input[id*='chkStudent']")[0].checked == true) {
                        var userID = $(this).find("input[id*='chkStudent']").attr("UserID");
                        var data = { ID: userID };
                        var temp = $(this);
                        $.getJSON("/Student/DeleteStudent", data, function (response) {
                            if (response == true) {

Now in controller delete record.

public JsonResult DeleteStudent(int ID)
    // delete the record from ID and return true else false
    return Json(true, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
