Limiting Scrolling - Image in Window

I have a problem with a feature that I added for scrolling around an
image in a window.  The feature allows a user to right click on the
image and drag it around.  The problem is that it will allow a user to
scroll an image right out of the window and this screws up the display
of the image (this happens when the window size is larger than the
image size).  Eg. image has a width of 100 pixels, but window size
has width 200 pixels.  I can right click on the image, move the mouse
left (you kind of have to move the mouse back and forth for the
problem to appear), and have the image scroll off of the screen to the
left.  I want to prevent this from happening.  Here's the code that
I currently have that attempts to do that.
pDoc->LeftImage->GetNumPixels() returns the total width of the image
that is displayed in the window.

void CDibEditorView::OnMouseMove(UINT nFlags, CPoint point)
{
      // TODO: Add your message handler code here and/or call default
      CDibEditorDoc* pDoc = GetDocument();
      
      
      if (pDoc->state == 1) {
            
            if ((nFlags & MK_RBUTTON) != 0) {   // if right mouse button is pressed
                  CPoint ScrollPosition = GetScrollPosition();
                  
                  ScrollPosition.x -= (point.x - pDoc->mouse_from.x); // calculates the amount that the mouse has been moved since the last OnMove call.
                  ScrollPosition.y -= (point.y - pDoc->mouse_from.y);
                  // Must find out size of the client area of the window
                  LPRECT pRect;
                  GetClientRect( pRect );
                  
                  if (pDoc->LeftImage->GetNumPixels() - ScrollPosition.x < pRect->right) {
                        ScrollPosition.x = 0;
                  }
                  if (pDoc->LeftImage->GetNumLines() - ScrollPosition.y < pRect->bottom) {
                        ScrollPosition.y = 0;
                  }
                  ScrollToPosition(ScrollPosition);
                  
                  pDoc->mouse_from.x = point.x;
                  pDoc->mouse_from.y = point.y;
                  
            }
      }
      
      
      CScrollView::OnMouseMove(nFlags, point);
}

Currently, the program crashes at GetClientRect( pRect ) with an
access violation.  I'm wondering about how to best go about
fixing my code to get the results that I desire.  I'm not sure whether
the code that I've written will fix things (after fixing the crashing
problem) or whether a different approach is needed.

Hi!
// Must find out size of the client area of the window
>>LPRECT pRect;
>>GetClientRect( pRect );
problem is here !
ypou must supply pointer to the existing RECT obj that is:

RECT Rect;
GetClientRect( &Rect );
