Here's what I have so far which only extracts a string containing the style name but I can't figure out how to get it in the window any way.  I realize there's a WindowStatusArea command but I don't know how to use it yet.

I copied the Mathematica code from a notebook into the editor of this
forum. When the code was displayed in this forum, it contained
additional space and line breaking characters.

When you just paste this code back into a Mathematica notebook, it
will not work.

All you have to do (to make this code work) is to remove the space and
line breaking characters until you have a standard option with a Rule


I hope this helps.
