    I'm not sure what you're asking for exactly. The paramters for getting the size of the desktop are SM_CXSCREEN and SM_CYSCREEN. I'm not sure on this one because I'm only looking through the headers but I think the size of your window would be SM_CXSIZE and SM_CYSIZE. Try those and let me know if they work

    ok here is what i have and it should explain a little bit better wat i am doing

    Code:
    		int x = GetSystemMetrics(SM_CXSIZE);
    		MoveWindow(hwndEdit , 10 , 10 , x - 50 , 15 , TRUE);
    when it starts up it seams that the edit control is not responding and it is not resizing, im trying to make auto resize with the main window (hwnd)
    thanks
