I'm used to using VB 6.0 and when I wanted to access the text in the title bar of an external application I would just use SendMessage.  This doesn't seem to be working.  Is there a different way to accomplish this in VB.Net?  Also, does one access the windows API functions differently in VB.net than VB 6.0?
