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.

Hi,

Use SetWindowPos whenever you want to change the size (or position) when the window exists.
If you want to change size or position before the window is created, override CWnd::PreCreateWindow, and chage the x,y,cx,cy members of the CREATESTRUCT appropriately.

1) SetWindowPos as previously said can be used in OnCreate in your window.

2) To fix the size you need to handle WM_GETMINMAXINFO. This override will allow you to prevent the sizing beyond a certain point. Other wise try handling OnMove and OnSize, without calling the base class.
