If you have handle of control, you can get it's class. In example below you should get "SysTreeView32".

GUICreate("GUI")
$TreeView = GUICtrlCreateTreeView(5, 5, 100, 100)

$sClassName = _GetClassName(GUICtrlGetHandle($TreeView))

MsgBox (0, "Control class", $sClassName)

Func _GetClassName($hWnd)
    $pClassName = DllStructCreate("char[256]")
    DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "GetClassName", "hwnd", $hWnd, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($pClassName), "int", 255)
    Return DllStructGetData($pClassName, 1)
EndFunc

If the control is in an external window then you could first use ChildWindowFromPoint or RealChildWindowFromPoint to get the handle for the control then use Lazycat's function to find the classname.

You need to look at the styles. See the help for button styles, and compare with the results in the code below. (Least significant byte)

#include <winapi.au3>
#include <constants.au3>

$Group = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Run", 16, 176, 289, 57)
