Hello,

You can try using GetWindowRect (its a Win32 API function). It requires an hwnd in its parameter. Try using ADXIEModule.MainWindowHandle or ADXIEModule.ParentWindowHandle.

Hope this helps.

Hello Yohn,

Please find how to declare that Win32 API function at getwindowrect (user32). The declaration of Rect is here: Rect (Structures).

Hello Yohn,

That rectangle is returned by GetWindowRect(parentwindowHandle, ...).

Pay attention:

The GetWindowRect function retrieves the dimensions of the bounding rectangle of the specified window. The dimensions are given in screen coordinates that are relative to the upper-left corner of the screen.


See GetWindowRect Function.
