Simply put, how do I set it? Right now it's a string that I didn't create and I can't find where it is. I dug through Build Properties and poked in some other menus. I'm just not sure of where to look.

Seems simple enough, but it's eluded my Google-fu. Thanks in advance.

Not sure which languages/API's you're using but in the form editor you may be able to right-click and choose properties (if the properties window is not already opened) and set the 'Text' attribute for the form. There's also the SetWindowText function if you can't do it the above way.

Apologies; I'm using Visual Studio Express 2010 for C++. The titlebar is something like "SDL_App"; not sure how it got there (tho I bet SDL had something to do with it). I'll try SetWindowText, thank you.

EDIT: Now I just have to recall how to ask the window what it's handle is. <_< I've been letting SDL do all of the Windows stuff for me.
