Screenshot A lot of softwares give you some important informations or results in Listview or other controls,
but the trouble is developpers don't gave us a way to save these results.
This application tries to fill this lack.
You can grab other processes controls content: Listview, Listbox, Combobox, Password fields, Static and of course Edit fields.
It can work with all applications based on windows API, that means c++ (Visual or Borland), c# and VB apps;
but it won't work with java applications.
