The message box function is mainly used to prompt the user for a click of a button, or to deliver a message. Please keep in mind you don't use parenthesis [ ( and ) ] unless you are assigning the message box to a variable or you are using it in a statement.
MsgBox "Microsoft Speech Platform SDK have been installed on your computer.", , "SDK Installation"

In order to get the value returned by the user, you need either a Comparison or a Variable (With a variable, you will need a comparison later to see the value anyway). To check the variable, you would use the type, such as vbYesNo, and put a [vb] before the input you're checking it for. The following is an example using an If Statement with the vbYesNo  parameter.
If MsgBox("Do you have five fingers?", vbYesNo, "Question") = vbYes Then MsgBox "Most people do."
If you don't put in a type at all, such as in the first example at the top of the page, it would default to vbOkayOnly. Here is the same code using the number  instead of the word name [vbYesNo].
If MsgBox("Do you have five fingers?", 4, "Question") = vbYes Then MsgBox "Most people do."
In order to use the different default button parameters mentioned above, you would add a [+] after the type, and then which button to default on. If you don't include the button to defualt on, it automatically defaults on the first button. The following example is the same vbYesNo box as above, only with the second button defaulted:
If MsgBox("Do you have five fingers?", vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2, "Question") = vbYes Then MsgBox "Most people do."
You can use the same principle of the plus [+] character to add the vbCritical/Question/Exclamation too. Here's an example of a vbYesNo that is with a vbInformation:
If MsgBox("Do you have five fingers?", vbYesNo + vbInformation, "Question") = vbYes Then MsgBox "Most people do."
Perhaps you wanted that same thing only with the second button defaulted? Here's the code:
If MsgBox("Do you have five fingers?", vbYesNo + vbInformation + vbDefaultButton2, "Question") = vbYes Then MsgBox "Most people do."
Some of the other types mentioned were vbCritical , vbQuestion , and vbExclamation . Here is an example of the vbCritical:
MsgBox "", vbCritical
If you wanted to display a variable in a message box, you would simply use the following code. In this example, the variable name is "TXT", and it contains the text "These are words."
TXT = "These are words." MsgBox TXT
If you don't want to include all the parameters (The main text, type, and title), then you simply leave that space empty. Such as if I only wanted the main text, I would do the following:
MsgBox "Main text here"Only type:
MsgBox "", TypeHereOnly title:
MsgBox "", , "Title here"Only main text and title:
MsgBox "Main text here", , "Title here"Only main text and type:
MsgBox "Main text here", TypeHereOnly type and title:
MsgBox "", TypeHere, "Title here"
