using a delete triggers to get a warning message from SQL Server

Hi,

I am wondering if it is possible to create a delete trigger that display a warning message when a delete operation is carried on more than one record and gives us the option to cancel or continue with the deletion?

I created the following delete trigger on the Employees table that cancels any delete operation involving more than one record, I need to take it up further and have it produce a warning with a cancel/continue option.

Create Trigger tgr_delEmployees on Employees
After Delete AS
Begin
if ((Select count(*) from Deleted) > 1)
Rollback Tran
End

Can throw an non-fatal error, yes.

NO.  SQL Server is a database, and not a user interface tool that gives users options of any kind, such as confirming an action before it happens.  This has to be done on the front-end.
