strange problem with MoveWindow

The following code works fine in a view when the view is in a splitter window, but when the view is created in an SDI style the child window gets offset by (2,2).

This code is called from a child window.

CRect parentrect;
CWnd *parent=GetParent();
parent->GetWindowRect(parentrect);
CRect myrect;
GetWindowRect(myrect);

myrect -= parentrect.TopLeft();
MoveWindow(myrect);

If the top left corner of the child starts as 491,515 it will end up at 493,517

The only difference is whether the view is created in a splitter window or not.  Any suggestions

That is the design.

The view also have a non client area of 2 pixel. that is why this is happening.
So u have to get the window style and should consider this style for 2,2 offset.

GOOD LUCK
