Can Any 1 help me To get the attributes of a newly created form.  This form can be created by anything such as the drive contents or media player ETC...

I need to be able to get the The Forms ID and enough attributes for me to change the newly created forms caption bar.

I have Some idea on how to do it from articles but they are not clear.  i think the way to go about this is the windows messaging using the SetWindowsHookEx method.

Can Sopme 1 plz help me!!

If you want to change caption of other runnung application try this command , It works well.
(I GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE FOR NOTEPAD PROGRAM , YOU CAN CHANGE IT)
}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  SetWindowText(FindWindow('notepad',nil),'Test');
end;


//or:

SendMessage(FindWindow('notepad',nil), WM_settext, 0, Integer(PChar('test')));

I would do it like this:

function GetWindows(Handle : hWnd; LParam : LParam) : Boolean; stdcall;
begin
  SendMessage(Handle, WM_SETTEXT, 300, LongInt(TForm(LParam).Caption));
  Result := True;
end;

function SetWindowText(Handle : hWnd; LParam : LParam) : Boolean; stdcall;
begin
  SendMessage(Handle, WM_COMMAND, $A065, 0);
  Result := True;
end;

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
begin
  EnumWindows(@GetWindows, LParam(Edit1.Text));
end;

All you have to do is set the timers interval to 100 or something suitable and then type the text you want to appear on the title bars in the edit box.

Cheers,

Alan
