I have obtained a handle to another window, if I after sometime wants to know if the window is still alive, how do I achieve that ?

Is there some IsHandleValid API ?

Just make a recall of how you retrieved the handle in the first place. If the Window was closed and then reopened it will have a new handle anyway. I my opinion a Window handle should be used as soon as you get the handle and not using it at a later time because things can happen quickly that the handle you have may of expired, at least for that window.

Try isWindow:

if isWindow(Handle) then begin
  // the window still exists
end;
