How to use MacBook display as temporary display for a PC?

Would it be possible to use a MacBook’s display as a temporary monitor for a PC (with a broken monitor)?

If you have Windows you can use remote desktop for Mac to connect to your PC. Alternatively, or if you have Linux, you would need to install some screen sharing application like VNC then connect with your Mac. There's no way to directly use the MacBook's screen from an external PC.

For some reason, it never occurred to me to use remote desktop, I guess I was thinking more about hardware than software. Thanks for the suggestion, that should work for what I need.
