Ok so now im using GetWindowText() and it seems to capture all window titles. But i need it to look for a specific window, Notepad in this case.

Here is my code:

<br />
#include <iostream><br />
#include <windows.h><br />
using namespace std;<br />
<br />
<br />
int main(void)<br />
{<br />
	HWND currenthwnd,hwnd;<br />
	char s[1024];<br />
	hwnd=NULL;<br />
	while (1){<br />
	Sleep(1000);<br />
		currenthwnd=GetForegroundWindow();<br />
		if (currenthwnd!=hwnd){<br />
			hwnd=currenthwnd;<br />
			GetWindowText(hwnd,s,1024);<br />
			printf("%s\n",s);<br />
		}<br />
		if(strstr(s, "Notepad") == 0){<br />
				cout << "Notepad is open! " << endl;<br />
		}<br />
		else{<br />
			cout << "Its not open " << endl;<br />
		}<br />
	}<br />
	return 0;<br />
}<br />
</windows.h></iostream>


Problem is when the program is running it prints Notepad is open when it really isnt. Can someone help me fix this? Thanx in advance!
