How to prevent record deletion based on certain condition?

Hi,
I am new to salesforce and i am facing an issue in writing a trigger.
The scenario is All the SALES user profile should be able to delete contact records except those records whose Status is Active.

Please help me in writing trigger.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,
Ricky

Hi Ricky,

Below code can help you.
trigger deleteContact on Contact(before delete) {

 Id profileId = userinfo.getProfileId();
 String profileName = [Select Id from Profile where Id =: profileId].Name;
 //if you are using Status field as picklist then write con.Status__c == 'Active'.
 //if you are using Status field as checkbox then write con.Status.
 for (Contact con: trigger.old) {
  if (profileName == 'Sales' && con.Status__c) {
   if (Trigger.isBefore) {

    if (Trigger.isDelete) {

     con.adderror('You cannot delete the record');

    }
   }
  }
 }

Sample code is here 
Trigger PreventDelete on Account(before delete)

 }
 }
