Hello Team,

I have following Code which identify Window Text.
But How to identify
- If Any PopUp opens in that window(Child Window) - then I don't want child window title but want Parent Windows Title.
- How to distinguish between Child Window and Parent Window?

public class MyClass
    private static extern int GetWindowText(IntPtr hWnd, 
                                            StringBuilder text, 
                                            int count);
    private static extern IntPtr GetForegroundWindow();
    public static void Main()
        for(int i = 0; i < 10; ++i)
            IntPtr windowHandle = GetForegroundWindow();
            StringBuilder titleBuffer = new StringBuilder(1024);
            if (GetWindowText(windowHandle, titleBuffer, titleBuffer.Capacity) > 0)

Please help!!!

Bad idea. The parent-child relationships for forms are made defunct, for a good reason.
Make on big main window, everything else makes the controls.
