hwnd [in]

Type: HWND

A handle to the list-view control.

iGroupId [in]

Type: int

Specifies the group by iGroupId (see LVGROUP structure).

type [in]

Type: LONG

Specifies the type of rectangle to retrieve. This parameter must be one of the following values.


Coordinates of the entire expanded group.


Coordinates of the header only (collapsed group).


Coordinates of the label only.


Coordinates of the subset link only (markup subset). A list-view control can limit the number of visible items displayed in each group. A link is presented to the user to allow the user to expand the group. This flag will return the bounding rectangle of the subset link if the group is a subset (group state of LVGS_SUBSETED, see structure LVGROUP, member state). This flag is provided so that accessibility applications can locate the link.


prc [in, out]

Type: RECT*

A pointer to a RECT structure to receive information on the group specified by iGroupId. The message receiver is responsible for setting the structure members with information for the group specified by iGroupId. The calling application is responsible for allocating memory for the structure.

Return value

Returns TRUE if successful, or FALSE otherwise.
