C# VS 2008 windows app HOW DO I RETURN FROM A VOID METHOD?

In this small code snippet if I have the user click canel how do I return back to whrever in the program they were before this method. It is void so I cannot use return, break doesn't do it? Thoughts? Thanks!

public void btnFullSearch_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            MessageBox.Show(" Continue?", "Test", MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel, MessageBoxIcon.Question);
            RecursiveSearch.RecSearch(txtShare.Text, txtFile.Text);
        }

Why would you need to return in such a small method anyway?

You show a message box and do a search.  This doesn't look like the place you need to do a return anyway.

A return in your RecSearch() method would be better placed.

ok a different example - using a CASE I can use BREAK. Assuming I dont want if result == cancel goToThisMethod(); what can I use to just EXIT A METHOD? Thanks.

Change the line

MessageBox.Show(" Continue?", "Test", MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel, MessageBoxIcon.Question);

to

if (MessageBox.Show(" Continue?", "Test", MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel, MessageBoxIcon.Question) == DialogResult.Cancel) return;
