Run time error "28" Out of stack space

I am getting a Run time error in the following program.  What I'm trying to accomplish is display a message box asking the user if they want to play again.  If the answer is Yes, clear the form, pick another spot, and start over again.  Here it is...


Option Explicit
Dim intMagicX As Integer
Dim intMagicY As Integer

Private Sub GetSpot()
 Randomize
 intMagicX = Rnd(1) * Me.ScaleWidth
 intMagicY = Rnd(1) * Me.ScaleHeight
End Sub

Private Function CalcDistance(X As Single, Y As Single) As Single
 CalcDistance = (Sqr(Abs(X - intMagicX)) ^ 2) + _
 (Sqr(Abs(Y - intMagicY)) ^ 2)
End Function

Private Sub Form_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Dim sngDistance As Single
Dim square As Integer
sngDistance = CalcDistance(X, Y)
Me.CurrentX = X
Me.CurrentY = Y

If sngDistance = 0 Then
 Me.Print "Magic"
 msgBox
Else
 Me.Print Format$(sngDistance, "#.#0")
End If
End Sub

Public Function msgBox()

Dim Message As String
Dim Response As Integer

' The Message of the dialog box.
Message = "Do you want to play again?"
Response = msgBox(Message)
If Response = vbYes Then
 Refresh
GetSpot
End If
End Function

Thanks!!

You are recursivelly calling a function, with no end.  So the stack just keeps growing:

Public Function msgBox()

              Dim Message As String
              Dim Response As Integer

              ' The Message of the dialog box.
              Message = "Do you want to play again?"
              Response = msgBox(Message)

In the above code you call msgBox in side of msgBox.. which creates and infinite call chain (well not really infinite since you will run out of stack space).  If you are trying to call the VB message box function within your function, then rename your function msgBox to something else.

If you want to call the VB messagebox function you can use Messagebox API or type

vba.msgbox

you do not need to rename the function......  this answer is better
