How do I do it? I've seen it in Mervbot. I want something other than the address of the file in the title bar

dispite the point that this is in the wrong forum (should be in Bot Questions) the answer is simple, its soo easy that anyone who would have read the mervbot.ini would have found it!

open mervbot.ini and then
Code: Show/Hide
[Misc]
WindowCaption=**the name of the window**

He means in any C++ program.

Well here's my modified way of how Catid did it. It's pretty complex, actually.
Code: Show/Hide
char fileName[532];
Sint32 len = GetModuleFileName(GetModuleHandle(NULL), fileName, 532);
SetWindowText(FindWindow(NULL, fileName), title)


As I don't feel like explaining all this, look all the functions up in the Windows SDK docs. This method requires windows.h (and, of course, Windows itself).
Dunno how to do it on another OS. icon_razz.gif

Yes, you told him how to set the caption of the MERVBot window. But that will surprisingly enough only work in MERVBot. He wanted the code behind it so he could make his own program that does the same thing.

Diediedie: I'd recommend just sticking with the default title for now icon_wink.gif

Well, I know the DOS command that does this: title. So if you really want, you could do system("title New window title here");.

Hmmmm, should I use Cyan's uber-complex way, or just a simple system command? Boy that sure is a tough one icon_rolleyes.gif. Thanks, mgb.

I beleive that was title.dat, however the version number in the title bar cannot be changed.

there is really a very very simple but I think it is a cheap way too do it but for those that want too it is a basic MS-Dos command. but this method only works in Consle apps in C++.
Code: Show/Hide

#include <stdlib.h> //Include this file for the system(); funcation

void main()
{
char Titlename[32];
strncpy(Titlename,"tilte ",32); //this adds "title " to the char
strcat(Titlename,"Title Here");  //now it adds the rest so it looks like:
//"title Title Here"
system(Titlename);
}


thats the cheap way but it works as long Windows got the title.exe I think it is or something like it in the ms-dos commands.
