Can this be done with Action or Func or Lambda expressions?

I want to take a MsgBox statement such as:

result = MsgBox("I need help!", MsgBoxStyle.OkCancel)

and put it inside a function - let's call it MyFunc - that returns a MsgBoxResult and be able to call it with a statement like this:

result = MyFunc(MsgBox("I need help!", MsgBoxStyle.OkCancel))

I don't understand how to specify MyFunc. Can anyone help?

I want to put some code in MyFunc that will determine whether or not to actually show the MsgBox or to simply return a MsgBoxResult. This determination will not require additional parameters.

It has to do with planning some automated testing from which we do not actually want to see a MsgBox. Since we will need this code a number of times, I am trying to write a function to make the determination and get the result rather than

If blah blah
   result = such and such
else
  result = MsgBox.Show(.....)

Sample of MyFunc.  You can pass in a messagebox call as the parameter...

Dim dr As DialogResult = MyFunc(MessageBox.Show("Help", "Caption", MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel))
Private Function MyFunc(ByVal result As DialogResult) As DialogResult
        ''More code??
        Return result

    End Function

Misread your question.  The following (in VB.Net) allows you to control whether or not to show the MessageBox.
Private Function MyFunc() As DialogResult

        Dim result As DialogResult

        If 1 = 1 Then ''<< your condition here
           result = MessageBox.Show("Help", "Caption", MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel))
        Else
            result = DialogResult.Cancel
        End If

        Return result

    End Function
