Get subclass information (winapi)

Attached is an screenshot of the WinSpy++ application. I want to create an app to help me monitor how much time I spend on certain things. It would be good to monitor how much time spent per VS project, and per file in the project. It would also be good to monitor things like how much time I spend researching etc, but no need to comment on that. I'm more concerned about the below.

In the screen shot you can see I've got my VS2010 window, and two children deep is a node saying 000A083C GenericPane "Delivery.ascx". What you cannot see is that at the same tree level, there are 3 other 'GenericPanes' called "Properties" "Solution Explorer" and "DocumentOutline". If you're familiar with VS then you'll recognise them.

I would like to know the API used to get to "Delivery.ascx" pane - more specifically, get to the text "Delivery.ascx". If that cannot be done, then it would be good to at least get the list of all the panes (I can hard code it to ignore the other three panes).

Any help appreciated.

I think the two API calls you need are GetWindowText and EnumChildWindows.
GetWindowText  is for retrieve the text for every window (like "Delivery.ascx")
here you have the documentation http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms633520(v=vs.85).aspx

EnumChildWindows might be usefult for you get every window of your tree, here is a link to an example>
