    Exclamation Password Edit Boxes

    Does anyone know how to retrieve text from a password edit box (an edit box with the password attribute checked) from any window, using Visual C++.

    I know how to get the password from an application that I am writing but not just any arbitrary window.

    I know a program called passwordreveal.exe which can be found at

    This program displays the actual characters that you type in any edit box on the screen rather than the ******

    Does anyone have the source code to this program or a program similar to it.

    Please email me at or post a reply at this board if you have the code or any advice or anything that can help me.
