Vertical scrolling.

One of the parameters of CWnd::OnHScroll is nPos which Specifies the scroll-box position. In my application, the range that the scroller can be changed is very large. It can get over 100,000. The problem is that nPos is defined as UINT. In such cases, when I drag the slider over the 32,768 position, the nPos get garbage values.
Is there any way to overcome this annoying behaviour?

As far as I know you can only set the range to the maximum possible and recalculate nPos with an algorithm like
nActualPosition = (nPos/32768)*100000;

Use GetScrollPos in CWnd::OnHScroll to get a 32-bit position.

If you want to use the nPos, you can get the actual position by :
if(((int)nPos) < 0)      // nPos < 0 if over 32767
     x = 32767+(32767-((int)nPos));

To get the full 32-bit scroll position you have to use the GetScrollInfo function!
SCROLLINFO si;
si.cbSize = sizeof(SCROLLINFO);
si.fMask = SIF_RANGE;
GetScrollInfo(hwnd,SB_VERT,&si);
//Get the 32-bit scroll postion
int nPos = si.nPos;

thanks, you showed me the way, but I think more accurate way to do it is like this:

SCROLLINFO si;
si.fMask = SIF_ALL;
GetScrollInfo(SB_HORZ, &si);
nPos = si.nTrackPos;
