Dear Experts

I need to find a HWND for Windows Form (NET Framework 2.0)   from this.Handle. How to do it ? More, I need to get in variable in IWin32Window . I need this because of use third part components and I need to pass it.
To be more clear,  I do not want to use find procedure via title of Windows, I believe there other way.

Thanks.

"this.Handle" is the HWND but in IntPtr form...

You can simply convert it to an int if that is what you are looking for:

    int HWND = this.Handle.ToInt32();

I suspect there's more to it than this though!

Can you explain in MORE DETAIL please?...

If your third part components are .net, then you can pass the the form instance itself.
For example I use the following construct a lot:
  form.ShowDialog(parentForm)
where parentForm is a valid from instance. Form supports IWin32Window interface.

it is as easy as:

IWin32Window hwnd = yourform.Handle;
