Hi, Allow2010. Can you be a little more specific - are you trying to change the title of a child window or the main? Maybe post part of your code? When using GUICreate to create your main window, the first option is title - so you should be able to set it here, unless I misunderstand what you're after.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
    Local $msg
    GUICreate("This is my Title", 300, 300)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    WEnd
    GUIDelete()

In the help file, look at the description for WinSetTitle, and follow the link called "Title special definition". That shows you how to use the window handle with the WinSetTitle function.

Try this:

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 300, 150)
$idButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Change Win Title", 100, 50, 100, 40)
GUISetState()
Do
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case -3
            Exit
        Case $idButton
            $new = InputBox("New Title", "Enter a new windows title")
            If Not @error Then WinSetTitle($hGUI, "", $new)
    EndSwitch
Until 0

hey thats easy...you can just use the winhandle insted of using text in WinSetTitle like this

WinSetTitle($hGUI, "", "Status: OK")

this is a bit hidden in the explaination...would be nice if the helpfile could just state that the first parameter can be title or handle :-)

edit: sorry, found it out from the helpfile just as you posted:-) Thanks!
