Does anyone know if the class atom obtained from: invoke GetClassLong, hWnd, GCW_ATOM Is this atom consistant? IE, can I make a list of common control class atoms, and have some assurance they will be the same next on all computers? (If it is, it makes a nice simple fast way to ID an unknown window) TIA

You can't guarantee it will be unique across all computers. Global atoms are unique within the system but cannot serve as GUIDs.

Thanks. Then I best catch them as I create them.
