        With Control Spy, you can see instantly how different styles affect the behavior and appearance of each control, and also how you can change the state of each control by sending messages.
        Two versions of Control Spy are available, one for Comctl32.dll version 5.x and one for Comctl32.dll version 6.0 and later. ControlSpyV6.exe has an application manifest built in so that it uses the newer, themed controls, whereas ControlSpyV5.exe does not and therefore defaults to the older version.
