Is there a way to determine if a window is a console window in fullscreen if I have the window handle (from GetForegroundWindow)?
I need a solution with is OS independend. (The "GetClassname solution" is OS dependend. But perhaps there is a way with GetWindowLong or GetWindowWord or GetStartUpInfo or MonitorIsInTextMode?)

hi,
i had a look at this and i dont see any way except checking the class name.
the window styles etc seem the same as a normal window under win2000 ,i cant find anything to say "yes im a console window" or "no im a gui window" ,im not aware of any apis that can do it.
i tried stuff also like SetConsoleTitle() then doing a findowindow on the new title but was getting invald handle errors .
