Copy text from a MessageBox

I learned how to copy text from a MessageBox about five years ago from one of my co-workers. For those of you who haven’t learned this trick yet; here it is.MessageBox

Let assume that we have a Message Box like one on the right. To copy the message all you need to do is to press Ctrl-C when the Message Box has focus.

Next open your favorite text editor like Notepad and paste it there by pressing Ctrl-V. You’ll see text similar if not identical to this one:

Some Message!!!

How cool is that.

kick it on
