Hello,

i'm searching a way to get a list of running application in Delphi XE2 win32
I have found a lot of code on the web but all of them are showing how to list "process"

I really need to get the list of running application like the Windows 7 Task manager do on the first Window

Does anyone know how to do?

Thanks for help

Windows function EnumWindows is available for this. You have just to use the right parameter to get just the value you need.
Try this code
function EnumWindowsProc(HWND: HWND; List: TStringList): BOOL; stdcall;
var
  s: string;
  IsVisible, IsOwned, IsAppWindow: Boolean;
begin
  Result := True; // carry on enumerating
  IsVisible := IsWindowVisible(HWND);
  if not IsVisible then
    exit;
  IsOwned := GetWindow(HWND, GW_OWNER)<>0;
  if IsOwned then
    exit;
  IsAppWindow := GetWindowLongPtr(HWND, GWL_STYLE) and WS_EX_APPWINDOW<>0;
  if not IsAppWindow then
    exit;
  SetLength(s, GetWindowTextLength(HWND));
  GetWindowText(HWND, PChar(s), Length(s)+1);
  List.Add(s);
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ListBox1.Clear;
  EnumWindows(@EnumWindowsProc, lparam(ListBox1.items));
end;

Open in new window
