Hello.

To obtain the offset of static control I use GetClientRect function.
But This returns only height and weidth of the target conrol.

I heard GetWindowRect function returns the position of static control, but It returns window refernced position, how can I get position of
static control refernced client window?

Get the window rect of the control and the parent.  Then get the difference.
