This message is sent to a window after its size has changed.


WM_SIZE fwSizeType = wParam; 
    nWidth = LOWORD(lParam); 
    nHeight = HIWORD(lParam);

fwSizeType

The window has been resized, but neither the SIZE_MINIMIZED nor the SIZE_MAXIMIZED value applies.

SIZE_MINIMIZED

The window has been minimized.

SIZE_MAXIMIZED

The window has been maximized.

SIZE_MAXSHOW

The window has been maximized and is displayed.

SIZE_MAXHIDE

An application should return zero if it processes this message.

If the SetScrollPos or MoveWindow function is called for a child window as a result of the WM_SIZE message, the bRedraw parameter should be nonzero to cause the window to be repainted.

Although the width and height of a window are 32-bit values, the nWidth and nHeight parameters of the WM_SIZE message contain only the low-order 16 bits.
