    VB.NET How to Title Get Exe

    For example, I opened "Untitled - Notepad" and I want to detect the title of it and pass the name processbyname to textbox1. How can I do it? So when "Untitled - Notepad" comes up and it is active, I want to transfer the name of processbyname to textbox1.

    As soon as the "Untitled - Notepad" title comes up, I want it to automatically detect it and print it to textbox1 as a "notepad". So I want to processbyname.

    Thank you.

    You can close the thread by clicking on "Thread Tools" just above your first post.

    I don't think that's what they meant. You can't close a thread on the Thread Tools menu, anyways, you can just mark it as resolved.

    FindWindowsEx seems like it does the opposite of what you want: It can be used to get the windows handle of a window given the title. You want the title given the window, so FindWindowsEx seems a bit backwards. It also won't do anything as soon as the window pops up, so you'd have to be monitoring active windows by some means to do that.
    My usual boring signature: Nothing

    Have a look at the System.Diagnostics.Process class:

    Code:
    Process p = <Get process>
    Console.WriteLine(p.MainWindowTitle)
