Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the window name (the window's title). If this parameter is NULL, all window names match.

If the function succeeds, the return value is a pointer to the window object having the specified class and window names. If the function fails, the return value is NULL.

This member function emulates the functionality of the function FindWindowEx, as described in the Windows SDK.
