Angular Material dialog send data on close dialog

I am just writing a small code that will help fellow developers to pass an object after the dialog is closed.

<!--Dialog Compoenent / popup -->
<div [innerHTML]="data"></div>
<button (click)="cancel()">No</button>
<button (click)="confirm()">Yes</button>

// Typescript
export class DialogComponent {

  // receive data from parent using 'MAT_DIALOG_DATA'
  constructor(@Inject(MAT_DIALOG_DATA) public data: string,
    private dialogRef: MatDialogRef<DialogComponent>) { }

  cancel() {
    // closing itself and sending data to parent component
    this.dialogRef.close({ data: 'you cancelled' })
  }

  confirm() {
    // closing itself and sending data to parent component
    this.dialogRef.close({ data: 'you confirmed' })
  }

}
//parent component

constructor(private dialog: MatDialog) { }

// method to open dialog
openDialog() {
    let dialogRef = this.dialog.open(DialogComponent, {
      data: `Are you sure you want to delete?`
    })

    dialogRef.afterClosed().subscribe(res => {
      // received data from confirm-component
      console.log(res.data)
    })
}
