There are some settings in a program that are listed in a listbox, but because of some poor programming are greyed out and unable to be resized, and I need to know the full values contained in the list items. I know of the Spy++ tool which can show information about buttons and other objects in Windows, but it doesn't tell me the data in the listbox. What I'm looking for is a tool which can tell me the contents of the listbox. Anyone know of such a tool?

I often use SysExporter which can export data from just about any Windows element.

You can use AltMove to force resize the box.
