How to set size of MDI child window?

I have a MDI application and wish to fix the size and position of a child window. I found that I need to use SetWindowPos but do not know when I should call it. Please advice. Thanks.

Use the PreCreateWindow function inside the ChildFrm.cpp file
could be MainFrm.cpp
or YouAppChild.cpp

This is the class that creates your frame window.

your function will look like this:

BOOL CMyProgChild::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{
  int x,y,w,h;
 
  x = TopValue;
  y = LeftValue;
  w = WidthValue;
  h = HeightValue;
  cs.x  = x;
  cs.y  = y;
  cs.cx = w;
  cs.cy = h;
 
  return CMDIChildWnd::PreCreateWindow(cs);
}
This will set the size and position of the window when you open the window.

Hope this helps, if you need more let me know..
