The Undocumented Feature

Hello everybody,

Well, I just want to mention a small trick that many may already know, but many may not.. It's about copying & pasting the text that appears in a MessageBox, many times that is needed during development, but yet it is not documented in msdn or any other Microsoft resource..
 
The thing is that you can indeed copy text in a message box using simply (Ctr+C) and then pasting the copied text in any editor (Ctr+V), and it ends up having sth like that..

   Text

   OK

I can imagine that this feature was made out of a dev's passion :) ..  anyway, It is really a useful thing to know.. Happy development !!
