You pass a rectangle structure filled with the desired client rectangle, and the function adjusts the rectangle to reflect the size of the window that will contain the client rectangle, based on the style you pass it (hopefully the same style passed to CreateWindow()). A window created with WS_POPUP has no extra Windows UI features, so the window will go through unchanged. WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW has to add space on each side for the resize bar and on the top for the title bar. ) so return false. This is handled in WinMain() by exiting the application before entering the message pump.
LpPoint Pointer to the client point; this point is changed to screen space. To change the rectangle you get through GetClientRect() to screen space, you can use the ClientToScreen() function on the bottom and right members of a rectangle. Slightly inelegant, but it works. One thing that can mess up window construction is determining the width and height of the window. You could say you want a client rectangle that is 800 pixels by 600 pixels (or some other resolution), but you call CreateWindow() giving the dimensions of the whole window, including any resize, title bar, and menu bars.
WndProc() Window procedure for the class. cpp. RegisterClass() Virtual function that registers the window class. This function can be overloaded in child classes to add functionality, such as a menu or different WndProc(). InitInstance() Virtual function that creates the window. This function can be overloaded in child classes to add functionality, such as changing the window style. GetHWnd() Returns the window handle for this window. IsActive() Returns true if the application is active and in the foreground.
