Copying message boxes

Sign in to follow this  


Continuing on my simple but usefull Windows XP tips posts, here's something that many at #gamedev went:
how did you manage to copy a dialog box?
how... weird?
copying dialog boxes?!

Yes. It's true! When a dialog box is active, just press ctrl + c. The standard copy to clipboard.

message box example

Selecting and pressing ctrl + c, then ctrl + v (pasting) it in here, we get:

Secure Copy 2
Run-time error '9':

Subscript out of range

Works for any MessageBox!
