I'm developing a version of Pente using MFC for a programming class and have created a representation of the board.  However, the board doesn't fall within the bounds of the default window created when I open the application.  I began the program using the AppWizard.  How do I change the default size of the application window?

If this is an SDI or MDI application you can use the

CMainFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{
    cs.x = iXNum     // x-coordinate of upper-left corner of main window
    cs.y = iYNum    // y-coordinate of upper-left corner of main window
    cs.cx = iWNum // width of window
    cs.cy = iHNum  // height of window

    return CMDIFrameWnd::PreCreateWindow(cs);  // this is added with the wizard
}

You can add the PreCreateWindow override through the class wizard by selecting the application's MainFrame class and selecting PreCreateWindow from the messages.

I am assuming this is not a dialog application, because you should be able to just size the dialog at design time to suit your needs.  If this is not what you need let me know.

If your display is inside a document of an  MDI then just override the PreCreateWindow of the frame class of that document using the same method.
