The CREATESTRUCT structure defines the initialization parameters passed to the window procedure of an application.

typedef struct tagCREATESTRUCT {  
    LPVOID lpCreateParams;  
    HANDLE hInstance;  
    HMENU hMenu;  
    HWND hwndParent;  
    int cy;  
    int cx;  
    int y;  
    int x;  
    LONG style;  
    LPCSTR lpszName;  
    LPCSTR lpszClass;  
    DWORD dwExStyle;  
} CREATESTRUCT;

lpszName
Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the new window's name.
