i dont think those are what im looking for. i want the opposite of SetWindowPos. i want something that will retrieve HWND_BOTTOM HWND_TOPMOST HWND_TOP or HWND_TOPMOST for a given hwnd

You can use GetTopWindow as the opposite of HWND_TOP. And you can check whether GetWindowStyle(windowHandle, GWL_STYLEEX) contains the flag WS_EX_TOPMOST to check for HWND_TOPMOST.

HWND_NOTOPMOST -> GetWindowLong(GW_STYLEEX) does NOT contain the flag WS_EX_TOPMOST
HWND_TOPMOST -> GetWindowLong(GW_STYLEEX) DOES contain the flag WS_EX_TOPMOST
HWND_TOP -> GetTopWindow
HWND_BOTTOM -> no idea
