CWindow::ResizeClient() Function for CWnd (or derived classes)

With this Function you can resize the window to the specified client area size of your CWnd or derived classes like the CWindow::ResizeClient() function.


You have a dialog based application and the client rect of the dialog depends on the size of a bitmap.

Source Code

BOOL CYourWndOrDialog::ResizeClient (int nWidth, 
                                     int nHeight, 
                                     BOOL bRedraw)
 RECT rcWnd;
 GetClientRect (&rcWnd);

 if(nWidth != -1)
  rcWnd.right = nWidth;
 if(nHeight != -1)
  rcWnd.bottom = nHeight;

                          (!(GetStyle() & WS_CHILD) 
 && GetMenu() != NULL)), GetExStyle()))
  return FALSE;


  uFlags |= SWP_NOREDRAW;

 return SetWindowPos(NULL, 
                     0, 0, 
                     rcWnd.right - rcWnd.left, 
                     rcWnd.bottom -, 
} // CYourWndOrDialog::ResizeClient
