GetWindowRect function

Retrieves the dimensions of the bounding rectangle of the specified window. The dimensions are given in screen coordinates that are relative to the upper-left corner of the screen.

BOOL WINAPI GetWindowRect(
  _In_   HWND hWnd,
  _Out_  LPRECT lpRect
);

Parameters

hWnd [in]

Type: HWND

A handle to the window.

lpRect [out]

Type: LPRECT

A pointer to a RECT structure that receives the screen coordinates of the upper-left and lower-right corners of the window.

Return value

Type:

Type: BOOL

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

In conformance with conventions for the RECT structure, the bottom-right coordinates of the returned rectangle are exclusive. In other words, the pixel at (right, bottom) lies immediately outside the rectangle.
