Pass RECT to LPARAM in EnumWindows

I know I'm just missing something, but I'm trying to pass a RECT structure to LPARAM in the EnumWindows function. When I pass a reference to it, for some reason when I try to get the RECT structure again, it doesn't have the right values. I just need a little help getting the structure properly.

Here's how I'm calling EnumWindows:
EnumWindows((WNDENUMPROC)EnumWndProc, (LPARAM)&r);

Now, I can really remember how to get the value from LPARAM into a RECT. Just a simple code example is all I need.

Thanks to anyone who helps. =)

Cast the LPARAM value into a RECT pointer (or LPRECT), and then dereference the members using the -> operator.

  LPRECT lpRect = (LPRECT)lParam;
  printf( "top = %d\n"), lpRect->top );

Let me know what else isn't clear.

Hope That Helps,

Thank you! That worked. I knew I was forgetting something, and that was it (the LPRECT).
