I would like to use messagebox in my code but get the above error msg.
I use MsgBox but think that messagebox is more flexable and have more features.

Do I need a messagebox function to get this to work or what do I have to "import"?

Say no to macros

RE: messagebox is not declared

MsgBox() is a function and MessageBox is a class in System.Windows.Forms, which has the Show() method.

MsgBox("Hello !") 

does the same as

MessageBox.Show("Hello !")
