GetWindowRect reads the size and position of a window. This information is put into the variable passed as lpRect. The rectangle receives the coordinates of the upper-left and lower-right corners of the window. If the window is past one of the edges of the screen, the values will reflect that (for example, if the left edge of a window is off the screen, the rectangle's .Left property will be negative). The function returns 0 if an error occured, or 1 if successful.
Retrieves the dimensions of the bounding rectangle of the specified window.
