You can use the "MoveWindow" member function of CWnd after GetClientRect and Client To Screen.  For instance:

   CRect buttonRect;
   m_button.GetClientRect(&buttonRect);

   m_button.ClientToScreen(buttonRect);

   // Make it 20 px wider
   buttonRect.left -= 10;
   buttonRect.right += 10;

   m_button.MoveWindow(buttonRect.left, buttonRect.top,
      buttonRect.Width(), buttonRect.Height());

CRect Rect;

<yourControl>.GetWindowRect(&Rect);
<yourControl>.SetWindowPos(NULL,0,0,Rect.Width(),211,SWP_NOMOVE | SWP_NOZORDER);

The SetWindowPos Function takes width and height parameters. these will enable you to change the size and location of your controls.
