    Finding the handle of an open window..

    How is it possible to search for a window with a given titlebar for example and return its handle. A bit like VisualBasic's AppActivate, but once the window is found, a handle is returned..

    Thanks.

    If you know the window's open and know it's title then you can use FindWindow().
