I have a delete button. Upon click of that button, I have a prompt for with a Yes/No option. I have the "Yes" button working, but the "No" still operates using the "Yes" function. How can I make it call or have it's own function?

The code below can be a solution to your query. You can write this in a Javascript function and call the function in the click event of the Delete Button. This code propmts a message box with the Ok and Cancel buttons and on Clicking on OK the code inside the if block will get executed
*******Code Begins here*********

if(confirm("Are you sure you want to delete?"))
//Code here if the option is 'OK'

*******Code ends here**********

I hope this works for you. All the Best

  Get the clicked button using DialogResult

here's quick example using VB.Net, not test yet, because no VS.Net now on hand

        Dim Message As String = "Do you want to save before exit?"
        Dim Caption As String = "Warning"
        Dim Buttons As Integer = MessageBoxButtons.YesNo

        Dim Result As DialogResult

        Result = MessageBox.Show(Me, Message, Caption, MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, _
            MessageBoxIcon.Question, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1)

        If Result = DialogResult.Yes Then
          MessageBox.Show("You choosed Yes")
         MessageBox.Show("You choosed No")  
        End If

Best regards

Sounds like you want:

    Private Sub cmdDelete_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdDelete.Click
        If MsgBox("Do you want to delete?", MsgBoxStyle.YesNo, "Confirm") = MsgBoxResult.Yes Then

        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub Do_Delete()
        'do stuff to delete something

    End Sub
    Private Sub Do_Cancel_Delete()
        'do stuff to not delete something

    End Sub
