When an object from another application
is captured, I want to know the objects name.

For example:
Spy++ retirves MSWord Editor class name
as _Wwg.

What is the MFC / API function
that does so ?

Hi yairy:
pWnd->GetRuntimeClass->m_lpszClassName
returns the class name of the object.
   The class does have to use one of the DECLARE_DYNAMIC/DECLARE_SERIAL macros.

DECLARE_DYNCREATE also works.  An example is say I have a class CMyView and in its OnDraw function I write
pDC->TextOut(0,0,GetRuntimeClass->m_lpszClassName);
it spits out
CMyView.

This will work:

TCHAR szClassName[255];
if (!::GetClassName(m_hWnd, szClassName, 255))
  ; // Do what you need to do

Good Luck,
Steve
