Programming "Cancel" button functionality for CommonDialog open

Mkay, currently I'm handling whether or not they press the cancel button with the following line of code:

If CommonDialog1.FileName <> "" Then

But, as it turns out, the commondialog will return the filename even if cancel is pressed. If I just let the thing open and then click cancel it works fine. If I click browse and then select a file and click cancel it'll open it anyway. I had figured if you canceled it wouldn't pass back the .filename.

How do I detect which button was pressed?
