What's the name of the Window at x,y?

If you have a need to find out the name of the parent window of a window or control at a given X and Y position, you maybe able to use the following "GetParentWindowNameAt()" function:
function GetParentWindowNameAt
         ( X, Y : integer ) : string;
  P : TPoint;
  W : TWinControl;
  P.X := X;
  P.Y := Y;

  W := FindVCLWindow( P );
  if( nil <> W )then
    Result := W.Name;
  end else
    Result := '';
