not able to spy on object in read only mode

So i noticed that Testcomplete object spy can't point to screen if the Desktop screen is in read only mode.

is there an alternative or am i missing something here?

 

Note:- Don't tell me to pick object when screen is not in read only mode. as i have to fetch text only when it is read only mode.

      it is an desktop application 

      and one of the values in the page is always in read only/ view mode

      when I am pointing object spy tool to that object it doesn't recognise it.

    I thought you meant Windows Desktop!

     

    Is the Object Spy tool able to identify other controls in your application?

      Yes Object spy tool is able to detect other controls in application in other pages.

      Not able to detect on only page which is in read only mode

    You mention "pages" - are you referring to a web browser or an application?

     

    Does your application have a built in control to display/show web pages?
