How do I broadcast a message to all top level Windows?

The  Windows API function SendMessage()  takes a 4 parameters. The
first is the window handle. To broadcast to all top level Windows, use
HWND_BROADCAST. The second parameter is the message itself, and then
the WParam and the LParam parameters for the given message. For the
WM_WININICHANGE message, wParam should be zero, and LParam should be
either the address of a null terminated section name that changed, or
nil if you want each window to examine all sections for the change.
Passing a null value is not recommended unless you have modified several
sections due to performance considerations.

void __fastcall TForm1::Button1Click(TObject *Sender)
    char s[64];
    StrCopy(s, "windows");
    SendMessage(HWND_BROADCAST, WM_WININICHANGE, 0, long(&s));
