void CEditorView::OnDraw(CDC* pDC)
{
      CEditorDoc* pDoc = GetDocument();
      ASSERT_VALID(pDoc);
      
      //
      //Set the mapping mode to LOENGLISH
      //
      pDC->SetMapMode(MM_LOENGLISH);

      //
      //Convert arguments to coordinates to MM_LOENGLISH units.
      //
      CPoint pos;
      pos.x = pDoc->GetGridWidth()*100;
      pos.y = pDoc->GetGridHeight();
      pDC->DPtoLP(&pos);

      //
      //Draw the square the has to bound the grid
      //
//      CRect rect(10, -10, pos.x, pos.y);//getting wrong rect in this way..WHY?

What values do pos.x and pos.y have?

Why do you use a CPoint to store x and y when you and later get back x and y seperatly? Perhaps using
CPoint ltpos (10, -10);
CRect (ltpos, pos); could be used instead?
