Get CTabCtrl client size within a splitter window

I derive a subclass A from CTabCtrl and put A into a CView-derived class B. B is used as a view in the splitter window. The splitter window has one row and two columns. I want to put a CWnd-derived class into pane (0, 0).

The code is like this:

class A : public CTabCtrl { ... };

class B : public CView
{
public:
    A m_a;
...
};

class D : public CWnd
{
    CTreeCtrl m_treeCtrl;
};

BOOL B::Create(LPCTSTR lpszClassName, LPCTSTR lpszWindowName, DWORD dwStyle, const RECT& rect, CWnd* pParentWnd, UINT nID, CCreateContext* pContext)
{
      // TODO: Add your specialized code here and/or call the base class
      if(!CView::Create(lpszClassName, lpszWindowName, dwStyle, rect, pParentWnd, nID, pContext))
            return false;
                /* here the rect has much smaller size than pane (0, 0) */

      CRect rectTmp;
      GetParent()->GetClientRect(&rectTmp);
      m_a.Create(WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | TCS_OWNERDRAWFIXED, rectTmp,
                         this, IDC_TABA);
                /* Here rectTmp is just 0 for top, bottom, left, right */
      D *pD = new D;
      pD->Create(NULL, "MyContainer", WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, rectTmp,
            &m_a, IDC_DDD);
      pD->GetClientRect(&rectTmp);
      m_treeCtrl.Create(WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE |
                                 TVS_HASLINES | TVS_LINESATROOT |
                                 TVS_HASBUTTONS | TVS_SHOWSELALWAYS,
                                 rectTmp,
                                 pD,
                                 IDC_LEFTTABTREECTRL);

                TC_ITEM tcItem;
                tcItem.mask = TCIF_TEXT | TCIF_PARAM;
                tcItem.pszText = "Browser";
                tcItem.param = (LPARAM) pD;
      m_a.InsertItem(pD, "Browser");
                return true;
}

So how can I get the correct size for child window D so that D will occupies all the empty area in the TabCtrl?

Thanks for your help

I have solved this question.

In class B, WM_SIZE is processed and pass the coordinates to Tab Ctrl and TreeCtrl, so that they can correctly resize themselves.
