I think you mean GetWindowRect

RECT rect ;
::GetWindowRect( hWnd, &rect ) ;

This will return screen coordinates of a window.  If you need them in client coords (e.g. for a child) use ScreenToClient

::ScreenToClient( GetParent(hWnd), (LPPOINT)&(rect.left) ) ;
::ScreenToClient( GetParent(hWnd), (LPPOINT)&(rect.right) ) ;
