you dont understand it because it's not as simple as a simple send message command. What it returns as you know is a Long value, 8 digit number, what that is is a pointer in memory, it's the memory location of where the title is stored. C++ uses a simple thing to allow you to directly read the string given the pointer, VB is not so easy. You must make string, find the pointer to the string, then use either CopyMemory, or lstrcpy to copy the data from the pointer winamp gave you, to the pointer of your own string, then when you use the string in VB, the data should be there.
