Retrieves the show state and the restored, minimized, and maximized positions of the specified window.
BOOL GetWindowPlacement( HWND hWnd, WINDOWPLACEMENT *lpwndpl );
A handle to the window.
A pointer to the WINDOWPLACEMENT structure that receives the show state and position information. Before calling GetWindowPlacement, set the length member to
sizeof(WINDOWPLACEMENT). GetWindowPlacement fails if lpwndpl-> length is not set correctly.
Type: Type: BOOL
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.
If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
The flags member of WINDOWPLACEMENT retrieved by this function is always zero. If the window identified by the hWnd parameter is maximized, the showCmd member is SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED. If the window is minimized, showCmd is SW_SHOWMINIMIZED. Otherwise, it is SW_SHOWNORMAL.
The length member of WINDOWPLACEMENT must be set to sizeof(WINDOWPLACEMENT). If this member is not set correctly, the function returns FALSE. For additional remarks on the proper use of window placement coordinates, see WINDOWPLACEMENT.
