Notifies the container that the object extents have changed.

Syntax

HRESULT OnPosRectChange(
  LPCRECT lprcPosRect
);

Parameters

lprcPosRect

A pointer a RECT structure that contains the position of the in-place object in the client coordinates of its parent window.

Return Value

This method returns S_OK on success. Other possible return values include the following.

Return code Description
E_INVALIDARG

E_UNEXPECTED
An unexpected error occurred.

Remarks

Notes to Callers

The OnPosRectChange method is called by the in-place object.

Notes to Implementers

When the in-place object calls OnPosRectChange, the container must call IOleInPlaceObject::SetObjectRects to specify the new position of the in-place window and the clipping rectangle. Only then does the object resize its window.

In most cases, the object grows to the right and/or down. There could be cases where the object grows to the left and/or up, as conveyed through lprcPosRect. It is also possible to change the object's position without changing its size.
