In MFC, I have a picture control(ie., rectangle). The video will be displayed there. Now, I want to change the resolution. I used the following code,

CWnd* pWnd = GetDlgItem( IDC_STATIC_PRE );
stat.SubclassDlgItem(IDC_STATIC_PRE, this);
stat.SetWindowPos(&CWnd::wndTop,1,1,40,40,SWP_DRAWFRAME|SWP_SHOWWINDOW);
CStatic stat;

But when I run the application, the static window(rectangle) disappears. Why?. What code I have to add to set the new window position?.

The code as posted above should not work. Do you meant:

CWnd* pWnd = GetDlgItem( IDC_STATIC_PRE ); // attention the return value can be temporary.
// stat.SubclassDlgItem(IDC_STATIC_PRE, this); // what is this needed for?
pWnd->SetWindowPos(&CWnd::wndTop,1,1,40,40,SWP_DRAWFRAME|SWP_SHOWWINDOW); // has no effect if pWnd is temporary.

But a more robust approach would be to use a control variable for that static frame. Open the class wizard and select the member variable tab. Here select the class and ID (IDC_STATIC_PRE) and create a variable. Here select as type control (not value). Now you cna use that member variable inside your functions to change the size and position.

m_csPre.SetWindowPos (...); // no need to find a window.

Though it's not clear from your question what exacly your problem.

first line should be
CStatic* pWnd = (CStatic*)GetDlgItem( IDC_STATIC_PRE );

your declaring CStatic stat after you used it.

Please be specific about your problem and give code where you have doubt

CWnd* pWnd = GetDlgItem( IDC_STATIC_PRE );
stat.SubclassDlgItem(IDC_STATIC_PRE, this);
stat.SetWindowPos(&CWnd::wndTop,1,1,40,40,SWP_DRAWFRAME|SWP_SHOWWINDOW);
CStatic stat;

There are many strange things in your code:
- stat is defined (last line) AFTER using it. How this compiles?
- pWnd apparently points to your static control (first line), then, why do you apply SetWindowPos to stat intead of pWnd?
- Why do you subclass stat?

CStatic m_csPre;
m_csPre.SetWindowPos (&CWnd::wndTop,1,1,40,40,SWP_DRAWFRAME|SWP_SHOWWINDOW);

I have selected the class and ID (IDC_STATIC_PRE) and created a variable. There I have selected as type control. Then I have used in the function. But, when I run, there is an error. Why?.

What is the error? And where do you use it first? The control variable can only be used in or after OnInitDialog (assuming a dialog based app).

CStatic m_csPre;
// Where is the m_csPre.Create(.......) ?
m_csPre.SetWindowPos (&CWnd::wndTop,1,1,40,40,SWP_DRAWFRAME|SWP_SHOWWINDOW);

CStatic m_csPre must be a member of your dialog or view object, because If you instantiate (declare) it inside a function, it will be destroyed at returning from function.
