Intro:
------
I was interested to have a tool such as Spy++ in Microsoft Visual Studio But I like that tool
can modify window controls. For instance, some time we need to enable some inactive controls
in form of some run-program.So Spy++ does not have any facilities to do it, I make it by myself.

Thus, This tool provides my ambition to modify program in run. I wish to have time 
to expand it. It was exciting if we could change every control in run-time. Also this tool 
help to people who do not have information about window handles and let them learn window 
handles by looking inside of my source.


Features:
---------
At the moment zero Dump is able to hook window controls and modify them. It catches handle 
of target window by mouse navigation and it captures victim. You can modify properties of 
target control. I have plan to find Virtual Address of DlgProc and WndProc in next version. 
If I do it, we will be in one step to find Address of Entry Point (OEP).

This application is open source. You can use my source If you refer to my site or my 
name.


Prevention:
-----------
You should promise not to use this tool in wrong ways. I will be not responsible for harmful
result by immoral using of this tool.


Dedication:
-----------
I dedicate this tool to every body who are interested in Windows programming.


Plan to do:
----------- 
- Recognize and modify styles for different type of window control.
- Seek Virtual Address of DlgProc and WndProc.
