Using Borland C++ Builder 6.0
Got this code:

char* oldtitle = "";
char* title= "a";
while(1)
             {

                    Sleep(10);
                    HWND wnd=GetForegroundWindow();
                    ShowMessage("Trying");
                    if(wnd) {
                        char* title;
                        GetWindowText(wnd,title,sizeof(title));
                        ShowMessage("Success");
                        DWORD err = GetLastError();
                        ShowMessage("Error code:" + IntToStr(err));
                        ShowMessage(title);

                    }
                    if (title != oldtitle) {
                       oldtitle = title;
                        DoSomeAction();
                    }



Don't know why but the title is always a null value.
