Delete Record Confirmation - How do I prevent a deletion if user changes his mind?

I am working with a details view form and have added some code to warn the user they have clicked on the Delete Button. However, if they realise they do not want to delete the record and click on the "No, (don't let me do it)" button, it stills deleted the record. How do I make my "No" button work?
I am working with Visual Basic, with a SQL database.
'This is what I have...
 Private Sub BindingNavigatorDeleteItem1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles BindingNavigatorDeleteItem1.Click
        Dim result As New DialogResult
 
        result = MessageBox.Show("Confirm Delete", "Delete Database", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Warning)
 
        If result = DialogResult.Yes Then
            MessageBox.Show("Deletion Successful")
        End If
    End Sub

Open in new window

            MessageBox.Show("Are you sure to cancel the delete action?")
            -- Exit or redirect to previous screen code here
        ELSE if
           -- Do the delete action code here
        End If
    End Sub

I hope this help!

Hi 60MXG, many thanks for your response. Sorry for my late reply.

I actaully have the code you have kindly given me but not the bits you have suggested I use after the message. (I'm pretty dumb on coding). What do you mean "Do the delete action"? Doesn't the Binding Navigator take care of that? Anyway, I am more interested in preventing a delete if user changes their mind. So, what happens after they select the "No" MessageBox warning?

meant you can code whatever you want such as delete something or disable or redirect user to begining of the form etc.
