    The SetWindowText function changes the text of the specified window’s title bar (if it has one). If the specified window is a control, the text of the control is changed.

    BOOL SetWindowText(
        HWND hWnd,	// handle of window or control
        LPCTSTR lpString 	// address of string

    Identifies the window or control whose text is to be changed.

    Points to a null-terminated string to be used as the new title or control text.
    hope that helped
