You have the Windows classes, that is a pseudo-collection of each opened 

DIM hWindow AS Window
DIM hForm AS Form

FOR EACH hWindow IN Windows
  TRY hForm = hWindow
  ' This window is a form
  ' In the standard use of Gambas, all windows are form
  ' But you can instanciate directly the Window class
