I am looking for a program that allows you to VIEW the hidden form
fields in applications on your computer.   For example where a program
has a form value for Password of '*****', you use the program to
figure out what '*****' represents.

I am NOT looking to find out how to view hidden form values in
webpages, that is easy enough (view source).  I need one for windows

I used to have this program on my computer, but I forgot it's name
(and cant seem to find it-- I dont really know what the search for). 
If anyone could fill me in, I would be very grateful.

field. Revelation will *ONLY* work if the password is displayed as

Hope this helps
